This Ooty Stripe Kilim cushion cover, in beautifully warm earthy colours, is handwoven on flat looms in India using traditional skills passed on over many years. Made from wool and cotton in an intricate stripey design. A high wool content ensures a gorgeous depth of colour and enables the fine detail to be included in the design. The highly skilled weavers use one of the looms in the weaving factory or supplement family income with income earned at home on looms provided. The pattern and materials are supplied to the weavers and they are paid on collection. The production facilities are visited and audited to ensure that working conditions are acceptable and that fair trade guidelines as set by the WFTO are in place. Kilim production is a skilled art which attracts good rates of pay. The business provides valued employment to almost 400 people in total.
