Abstract 'Face' Cushion Cover

Regular price £40.00 £0.00
Tax included.

This beautiful decorative cushion creates a vibrant focal point in your d̩ecor and is brought to you by artisans from Kashmir. Created in multi-coloured pattern on a white background, this design features a pop-art style face pattern.

A close-up view allows you to see the intricate use of 'Aari' or 'chain-stitch' hand embroidery to make beautiful patterns using different coloured woollen/silk threads. This kind of work is called the'Kashidari' embroidery achieved by the use of the traditional needle called the 'Ari'. It takes an artisan roughly around a week's time to finish making one cover.

Traditionally patterns involved floral and animal motifs, but these have evolved over time and modern Kashmiri artisans have created refreshing modern works interpreted in the palette of coloured silks and wool, using designs inspired by many abstract artists such as Gustav Klimt, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro, Thomas Fedro and Heather Galler.

18X18 Square

Tip: Get 2 inches bigger inserts like 20X20 to fill in the corners and make the cushion nice and fluffy.
