Large 60 cm square cushion cover, full of vibrantly coloured embroidery depicting the tree of life with peacocks.
A lovely brightly coloured cushion cover featuring the distinctive artisan embroidery of the Kathiawadi of Gujarat, India. Two fabulous peacocks, symbolising eternity, have
their marvellous plumage reflected in the colours of the extravagant floral universe that surrounds them. Embroidery like this has decorated desert tents for centuries and, traditionally, animals are included to reflect the glory of creation all around. Embroidered on handloom cotton and finished with green piping and tassels in each corner.
Hand made in a craft makers’ society based in Ahmedabad, Western India. The makers of this cushion cover will earn a decent income, and by participating in co-operatives, they have a say in who benefits from the profits. Improvement of skill and nurturing of talent is also a key proponent in the production of these goods as is a care for the environment.
