Desi Embroidered Cushion

from 108.00

Our Desi Handwoven Embroidered wool cushion covers are woven from local wool on traditional pit looms in Kutch, Gujarat, an area famed for its weaving.  

Desi wool has a distinctive "dry" texture, typical of wool from this area, although our cushions incorporate a warp of merino wool to soften the feel.  Because the desi wool is hand spun, the cloth has a wonderfully irregular colour, full of movement.    

Once woven, our cushions are sent to our hand embroiderers in Gujarat, to embellish with lines of traditional Soi work using English crewel wool in jewel-like colours.

Available with two or four lines of embroidery.  Special embroidery colours available on request.

Special embroidery colours are available for interior design projects - please contact us to discuss.

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

60 x 40cm (24" x 16") 2 lines of embroidery: from £108

60 x 40cm (24" x 16") 4 lines of embroidery: from £115
