We collaborated with Maricela, one of our incredibly talented artisan partners in Oaxaca, Mexico, on this fair trade weaving. The design was inspired by one of Maricela's traditional designs.
The 100% wool has been dyed using natural plants and minerals, then woven on a foot loom in the Oaxaca Valley in Mexico. A lot of indigo and cochineal colours have been incorporated into this cushion, resulting in a higher purchase cost- the cultivation of indigo and preparation of the cochineal is quite labour intensive. From dying the wool, to preparing the materials for the loom and then weaving, this piece takes around 5 days to complete.
This handcrafted textile has been finished with a heavy cotton backing, to create a 'forever' cushion.
This long cushion measures approximately 120 x 40cm, a perfect size for King or Queen beds, a sofa, bench or window seat.
• measuring approx. 120 x 40cm/ 47 x 16in
• back of cushion features heavy ecru cotton
• fits two 65 x 40cm inserts (not included - I use and recommend Ikea's Fjådrar cushion pad)
• envelope closure with woolen ties
• dry clean only
