This wool and jute, multi-textured cushion cover is woven by hand to create beautiful, punchy patterns, with fun tufts that embellish in maroon and teal. 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 bright hues, textures and layers of this cushion cover make it such an eye-catcher that it doesn’t get lost, it merely serves to highlight and enhance a space. Mix with a variety of textiles such as faded denim, chunky hand-knitted woollen throws, sheepskins and complement with quirky and contemporary pieces scattered around the room.
