Dot Chainstitch Cushion - Pink
Our round Dot Cushion is the perfect accent for the modern home. Designed by Sage and Clare, it was the inimitable skill of our artisans that shaped this design.
Crewel, an ancient technique of embroidery using a chain stitch technique, gives one side of this cushion its colour and texture. This hand embroidery is done in the rural homes of Kashmir, India, by farmers who’ve learnt this artisanal skill to boost their livelihood during the farming off-season or poor crop yield.
This hand crafted technique has very much been made redundant by modern embroidery machinery, but one we’re proud to keep alive here at Sage and Clare. There is a consciousness in the handmade product that can’t be replicated by machine. The result is a vibrant pink accent that is both simple and yet incredibly intricate.
The reverse side is hand block printed using traditional techniques in a dark navy, tribal pattern. This graphic print was inspired by vintage African mud cloth, giving our Dot Cushion a renewed take on customary textiles of the world. This block printing process starts with the hand-carving of a wood block into the pattern repeat, followed by the labour intensive process of printing the running fabric by hand. This expert printing is done by artisans in Jaipur, India, who’ve dedicated their life to mastering this ancient tradition
