This wool and cotton, multi-textured cushion cover is an eccentric mix of shapes, colours and textures for a fun and vibrant look. It is woven and embroidered by hand to create a beautiful, aztec punchy pattern, framed by a soft, short fringe. Fun tufts embellish the pattern in white and matching multicolour. The reverse is plain cotton in warm grey. The large textile manufacturer who makes this wonderfully tactile cushion cover employs four hundred people, of which over half are cottage workers. These artisans use traditional handiwork techniques to make all of their products including weaving, embroidery, kantha, tie-dye and block and screen printing, using materials such as wool, jute, cotton, seagrass, cotton and recycled materials. This can include anything from sweet wrappers to saris. All employees receive ES insurance, entitling them to free medical treatment for all the family, a Provident Fund pension scheme and interest free loans if necessary. They also support several international charities. They describe their team of young people as energetic and committed to the company’s vision of the future. A variety of textiles adds texture to a space, but on one item it’s a huge visual draw. The natural hues, textures and layers of this cushion cover exude the perfect amount of luxury for softening a backdrop of raw brick, leather and concrete, making it a focal point and statement piece. It is such an eye-catcher that it doesn’t get lost, it highlights and enhances a space. Mix amongst other textiles such as clashing patterns, faded denim, chunky hand-knitted throws, sheepskins and embroidered suzanis for effortless bohemian style.
