Bold, bright and beautiful, this filled cushion is effectively two in one. The reverse is in colourful Mexican Saltillo whilst on the face is an inquisitive and resplendent embroidered giraffe in stark black and white. This over is handmade from 100% cotton and both hand- and machine-embroidered. It is a textile that is gorgeously tactile and a visual delight in the respect that the exquisite needlework manages to translate the soft, inquisitive nature of such a beautiful animal. Sixty people work for the company that hand-makes this cushion, investing their time, personality, skills and individuality into each item. They produce beautiful textiles, cushions and scarves using anything from cotton, polyester and jute fabric to recycled plastic bags. Half are cottage workers, twenty people are employed at the factory and the remainder are sub-contractors. All employees receive benefits in addition to statutory wages, and as testament to their employer’s belief in them, are mostly long-standing members of the company. Environmentally, the company harvests water and recycles wherever possible, and factory improvements are an ongoing process. Bury your sofa with cushions in a variety of textiles and colours with this one as a playful highlight , either way round.
