This beautiful decorative cushion creates a vibrant focal point in your décor and is brought to you by artisans from Kashmir. Created in multi-coloured patterns, this design features ‘Frida Kahlo with parrots’ by Heather Galler. Artist Heather Galler’s work is colourful and explores a folk art style. 

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 Miró, Thomas Fedro, Sandra Silberzweig and Heather Galler.

18×18 Square

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

Composed of 70% art silk threads and 30% cotton.
