Double Happiness is a blessing traditionally bestowed upon a Chinese bride and groom, meaning ‘May you have twice as much happiness and half as much sadness in your marriage’.
The front side of this pillow cover design features the Chinese symbol meaning Double Happiness. The backside of the pillow is plain except for lines of eyelets through which ribbon or other embellishments can be woven through. Additionally, the backside is knit in two pieces for easy insertion and removal of a small pillow.
