Khamir Cubes Do Cushion

from 125.00

Our Khamir Cubes cushions and quilt are handmade by our master quilt maker in Gujarat, using organic kala cotton fabrics.  

Kala cotton, or old world cotton, as it is sometimes known, is an ancient species of drought resistant cotton which has been grown in the Kutch region of India since 3000 BC.  The growers do not use pesticides or synthetic fertilisers.  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, which is hand-spun, hand-woven and hand-dyed with plant dyes by local Kutch artisans.  You can read more about the kala cotton project here.

We worked closely with our quilt maker to create these patchwork cushions and complementary quilt.  The delicate hand-sewn kanthe stitching alone takes over one month to complete.  

Complementary Khamir Cubes Ek and Teen cushions, and Khamir Cubes Quilt also available.

Available with our without a duck feather-filled cushion pad (for reduced carriage costs, we suggest purchasing without the pad).
