Product: Cotton cushion cover made with hand loomed khadi cotton. Dyed by hand using natural vegetable colours. 40cm X 40cm. Envelope style closing. Khaki and off white front, khaki back.
Craft: these cushions have been made by a group of designers and artisans dedicated to reviving ancestral techniques of natural dying in Bangladesh. A social project concerned with craft heritage but also artisan welfare and the promotion of sustainable, ecological practices in the textile industry. All dyes are sourced locally and where possible use waste products (such as fruit peels and tree bark) or by products to create the colour.
Colour: Pomegranate & myrobalan
Pomegranate is one of the oldest cultivated fruits in the world. We use dried pomegranate peel to make golden yellows, greens and even dark greys.
Myrobalan / terminalia chebula
Terminalia chebula is a deciduous tree native to Asia, particularly the foothills of the Himalayas. The colour will change depending on the recipe and mixture of dyes. The particularity of Myrobalan is that it is rich in tannins, which attach well to the plant fibres, making it perfectly suitable for dying natural cottons and silks.
