Valerie Ley Alter of Fairly Worn has traveled the world and during those travels, collected ethnic and tribal vintage fabrics which she uses to create upcycled pillow covers, bags, and garments. Her choices of colors and embellishments has evolved into a recognizable style of soft colors, elegant finishing, and often, something to throw the design off center.

This listing shows some examples of how she has used worn kantha quilts, Hmong and Akha textiles to make beautiful pillows or cushion covers. The kantha quilts come from Bangladesh or West Bengal in India, while the Hmong and Akha are Hilltribe people living in Thailand and Laos, related to the Miao of China.

 

The tribal pillow covers can be identified by the following:

  • Kantha quilts are made from whole cloth that has been stitched with a running stitch. Valerie’s choices tend to quilts that have faded and show wear, making the colors soft. Many have block printing or have been hand dyed.
  • The Hmong textiles shown here are indigo dyed hemp that has been batiked and then embroidered. Hemp is a sturdy cloth that softens over time. The blue contrasts beautifully with embroidery or very thin pieces of cloth that have been appliqued, adding an extra dimension to the textile.
  • The Akha traditional clothing favors black and red combinations, heavy with embroidery and embellishments.

Fairly Worn’s upcycled tribal covers come with a story: from village to artist and now to you!
