This handmade cushion cover brings together age-old skills and modernist styling. Artisans at a fair trade cooperative in India have embroidered by hand this abstract leaf design using the ancient tradition of crewel work. Known to be a practiced technique for over 1,000 years, it involves using a special needle to free embroider a wide variety of stitched with wool on natural materials.

This hand crafted cushion cover is as natural as it comes, with wool embroidery brightening a sturdy cotton canvas cover. The plain cotton backing closes with 2 natural wooden buttons. Looking at the clean lines and number of stitches it's hard to believe that each one was done by a real person with love and care. Well it's true - but still amazing.
