Long Rectangle Handwoven Cushion - Cumin
Open-weave, gauzy cushion. Handmade using natural dyes.
Perfect for bench seating, or for brightening up a bed.
The cotton from which these beautiful cushions are made, comes from a Colombian seed that the local people have tried to resurrect in the region in order to maintain this traditional way of working.
US cotton had taken over almost all of the country and eliminated the native seeds, but its fibres were shorter and so more adapted to industrial picking and fabric making. The Colombian one has longer fibres, so it has to be picked by hand, spun by hand and woven on wooden looms.
The dyes are 100% natural: onion leaves for the yellow and beetroot for the grey.
100% colombian cotton
