Blue Zebra Kantha Cushion

Soft and and unique this beautiful cushion is made from a reclaimed cotton sari and this is the only one!  It takes hours of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows to create this beautiful piece of work.

The ancient craft of kantha stitching has meant many sari's have been repurposed over the generations. We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!

Dimensions: 46cm x 46cm  A perfect size for a scatter cushion.

Colour:  Front-Black and deep blue. Back-oatmeal plain

Includes Cushion Insert: Cotton casing polyester filling.

Washing advice: These cotton cushions can be machine washed on a gentle, cold cycle after cushion insert is removed. The close stitching help maintain the shape of the cloth. To extend the life of the cushion, we suggest you limit the number of washes.

The sari's are washed before they are sewn and are washed again before shipping. They arrive soft, clean and beautiful.

This cushion has been kantha stitched by a Bengali woman who has now been restored from a high risk situation.   After twelve months of support and training she now has  safe work place which also provides supportive care for her family.
