Sweetly Stitched Cushion Cover
This handmade cushion cover is a genuine piece of original art. Traditional embroiderers at St. Mary’s in Western India have hand-stitched this fleur de lis design in a stunning selection of cool-toned colours onto a traditionally loomed 100% cotton cover. Imagine the work that’s gone into each swirl, each leaf, each flower bud.
This hand-embroidered design has been designed specifically for Traidcraft, so you won’t see it anywhere else.

In 1954, a group of adventuring Dominican nuns from Spain arrived in Ahmedabad, India, to start a hospital. The sisters were horrified by the hopeless poverty, the homes without sanitation, and the low levels of life skills. The area had been famous for its textiles, but with trends changing the mills were starting to close, leaving families with little income.
“Everything is good! Like a family, we work together in a group.”
(Sunita, St Mary’s)
