HANDMADE IN BANGLADESH 

 

We hope that the colors and patterns of this unique kantha pillow will create lots of joy and coziness in its new home. The cushion measures 40 x 40 cm and includes a delicious mounting pad with new duck down.

 

The pillow is made from four layers of vintage cotton sarees. It is 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 pillow is sewn based on global fair trade principles and took approximately three and a half hours to sew by hand.

 

When you buy a pillow, you help ensure decent, meaningful and dignified jobs for marginalized women in Bangladesh. The women work for a socially responsible company, where they receive a fair salary, annual bonus (dividend) and professional training.

Details

This pillow is made from vintage cotton sarees, which means the product has a history.

 

The saris have previously been worn by women in Bangladesh. They have now been upcycled and given a new life. This 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 little features of the products and their history as much as we do – and we hope that you will enjoy them for many years to come.
