decorative pillows for the living room
Hand-sewn decorative pillows for the living room
The special thing about our decorative pillows for the living room is that they are hand-stitched with uniform visible stitches, called kantha stitches. Kantha is a special way of embroidery and is a centuries-long tradition originally from Bangladesh and India. The Kantha tradition is also very meaningful, because it is about giving new life to something old, and the beautiful colors and patterns on the fabric turn them into small unique works of art, which create a fantastic atmosphere and decoration in the home or summer house.
The story behind the unique and colorful pillows
The beautiful decorative pillows for the living room are not just colorful, they are also unique. There are only a few of each type of pillow because there is a limit to how many pillows can be made from one sari. A sari is a piece of cloth that has traditionally been worn by women in e.g. Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Nepal. It can be an heirloom passed down from generation to generation and used on special occasions or a garment worn every day.
All decorative pillows for the living room thus have one history, as the beautiful old saris have been upcycled and given a new life. This also means that the cushions are not "perfect" and may have minor stains and patches on them. Likewise, there will never be two products that are exactly alike, because the products are handmade. We hope that you will appreciate the small features of the cushions and their history and hope that you will be able to enjoy them for many years to come.
