Product: cotton and linen cushion 30 x 30 cm. These beautiful limited edition cushion covers are hand made in Paris, using contemporary hand loomed cotton from Burkina Faso, known as Faso Dan Fani.  Backed with a fine but strong Irish linen, and edged with a thick fluffy cotton fringe.

An exclusive Storie collection, made up of small batch of handmade,  vintage and upcycled fabrics, found in the four corners of the globe. Each cushion is  finished by skilled tailors in the French capital with an elegant linen, using an envelope style closing, with a discrete Storie label in the interior. Any eventual small irregularities are because the cushions, and materials are handmade and shouldn’t be considered as a default but an imprint of an artisanal process. 

 Craft: This particular fabric is known as Faso Dan Fani, and each design is a woven story, full of symbols. It is made using a generations-old method of hand-weaving practised in West Africa. Faso Dan Fani literally means "woven loincloth of the homeland". The production of this fabric is of great economic and cultural importance in Burkina Faso.


Storie produces these objects in order to transmit the knowledge of these traditional crafts, to promote this intangible cultural heritage, as well as economic autonomy of these craftspeople.
