This is one of our fair-trade items. Designed in the UK, this contemporary cushion is perfect for the conscientious home owner. This beautiful cushion is made from Eri silk. Eri silk is native to North East India. It is known as ‘peace’ silk as the worm does not get killed in the extraction of the silk. It is cultivated in the villages, handspun, naturally dyed and handwoven. This eri silk throw is woven in Assam using traditional techniques and natural resources. This cushion has been made fair-trade and commissioned by a designer who uses only individuals, NGO’s and handweaving co-operatives that bring economic sustainability to the community through their specialised weaving skills. It includes a duck feather filler.
