Leopold Block Printed Cushion
A modern tribal pattern embodies our Leopold Cushion.
The design of this cushion started with vintage mud cloth, a type of textile originating in Africa that is seeing a resurgence across stylish, bohemian homes of the world. Using the tribal motifs and prints found on mud cloth as inspiration, we took the execution of this cushion to India to be made by our artisans. It is this fusion of cultures that gives our Leopold Cushion a special quality.
What seems a rather simple cushion in design, takes surprising skill and workmanship to bring to life. Made in Jaipur, the textile capital of India, this cushion has been block printed front and back by our clever artisans. The process begins with the hand-carving of a wood block, before being intensively printed by our block printers to create this bold print. Much like piecing together a puzzle, the small block is repetitively printed with precision and alignment to ensure each piece of the pattern is matched to create a seamless look.
Variations in the print occur with each change of an artisan, hand pressure or even weather - handmade nuances we’re crazy about! The preservation of this time-honoured practice is one that we’re passionate about and creates a livelihood for artisans who increasingly compete with the advent of modern machinery.
Printed on a cotton slub fabric, this cushion has a soft-hand feel that is both textural and comfortable to live with. The graphic pattern appears front and back and combines two of our favourite colours this season - navy and blush pink. Features invisible zip and comes complete with high quality feather insert.
A striking cushion in versatile hues, designed to sit with the other pieces in our Caravan Collection.
