This wool and cotton, multi-textural cushion cover is a contemporary take on monochrome.
Woven, by hand, it creates a beautiful, shaggy and natural layered effect with added pompoms.
The reverse is plain slate grey cotton with a zip.
The textile manufacturer who makes this wonderfully tactile cushion cover employs four hundred people, of which over half are cottage workers. These artisans use traditional handiwork techniques to make all of their products including weaving, embroidery, kantha, tie-dye and block and screen printing, using materials such as wool, jute, cotton, seagrass and recycled materials. These can include anything from sweet wrappers to saris.
All employees receive ES insurance, entitling them to free medical treatment for all the family, a Provident Fund pension scheme and interest free loans if necessary. They also support several international charities. They describe their team of young people as energetic and committed to the company’s vision of the future.
A variety of textiles adds texture to a space and a variety of textiles within just one item creates a visual draw. The natural hues, textures and layers of this cushion cover exude the perfect amount of luxury for softening a backdrop of raw brick, leather or concrete, whilst remaining a focal point.
It is such an eye-catcher that it doesn’t get lost, it highlights and enhances a space. Mix amongst textiles such as faded denim, chunky hand-knitted throws, sheepskins and embroidered suzanis for an effortless style that doesn’t simply fade to grey.
