These cushion covers are chainstitched by Kashmiri artisans in India. They are a fair trade product with Ikuntji Artists’ Keturah Zimran’s artwork of Puli Puli – Rocks. Better World Arts creates these beautiful cushion covers in collaboration with Ikuntji Artists.
These cushions are filled and come in a deflated state.
They come in two sizes:
12 inch or 30 x 30 cm is small
16 inch or 40 x 40 cm is medium
These beautiful, unique textiles are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool, each is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because it is owned by the artists, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists’ and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these products guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
As these products are handmade, there maybe minor variations in dye and design.
