HOW AM I MADE?
With our artisans at the helm of this collection, hand embroidery is the chosen technique to breathe life into this favourite of ours. Known as Crewel, an ancient practice of embroidery, the front of this cushion has been hand-stitched with incredible skill and precision. So intricate in fact that we often find ourselves admiring with awe.
This crewel embroidery is done in a region of Northern India, known as Kashmir, a place famed for its artisans. Many of them work as farmers for half of the year, with their labour-intensive work being replaced with hand embroidery during the off-season or poor crop yield. Stitched in their homes, we’re proud to support time-honoured artisanal practices that contribute to improved livelihood and employment. Despite machine-made products seriously rivalling their handmade counterparts, we can’t go past a piece that’s been crafted by the hands of a master artisan.
