Chindi Patchwork Kantha Cushion

from 133.00

Our Chindi cushion covers are hand made in a patchwork of hand woven, naturally dyed, organic kala cotton fabrics.

Our makers ad lib a little with the patchwork, so no two cushion covers are exactly the same, although the fabrics used are, so a number of cushions will always work together.

We use a natural plain or subtly striped cottons on the back.

The kantha stitching in these cushions is skillfully executed by hand by our master quilt maker in Gujarat.  The tiny stitches are close together in neat rows, which sets them apart from many cheaper kantha stitched pieces on the market.  And this gives the cushion surface a lovely texture.

Kala cotton, or old world cotton, as it is sometimes known, is an ancient species of drought resistant cotton which has been grown in Kutch since 3000 BC.  The growers do not use pesticides or synthetic fertilisers, and it is watered only by rainfall.  The fabrics it produces are soft but durable. 

We buy our kala fabrics from an initiative in Kutch dedicated to the continued production of this ancient cotton, and the preservation of local artisan weaving traditions.  Sometimes, there are small irregularities in the weave which are part of the natural charm of this handmade product.

Available with our without a duck feather-filled cushion pad (for reduced carriage costs, we suggest purchasing without the pad).  Grey and natural cotton backing with bamboo button closure.

Complimentary Chindi quilts are also available.
