Bold, bright and beautiful, this filled cushion is effectively two in one. The reverse is in colourful Mexican Saltillo whilst on the face is a magnificently embroidered elephant in stark black and white. The cover is handmade from 100% cotton and is machine-embroidered and hand-finished. This is a textile that is gorgeously tactile and a visual delight in the respect that the intricate needlework manages to translate the soft, caring strength of such a gentle giant. Bury your sofa with cushions in a variety of textiles and colours with this one as a playful highlight, either way round.
