For thousands of years, the ethnic minorities living in the subtropical mountainous areas of southwestern China have created extraordinary handcrafted textiles depicting the native flora and fauna in wonderfully expressive patterns. Deftly embroidered and appliquéd, this late 20th-century textile repeats a stylized tile motif composed of flower shapes, birds, butterflies, and cats. We love the whimsical imagery and the strong graphic appeal of its carefully considered composition.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
