Limited Edition mishran silk kantha
Our new Limited Edition Silk Mel Khadi Cushions are made from panels of traditionally woven cloth. This technique dates back to the Indus civilisation however, as mass production increased, the Khadi technique fell into decline. Mahatma Ghandi instigated the resurgence of the Khadi weave, seeing its potential as a way for villages to become independent again through production.
Each panel has been carefully selected by Birdie along with its velvet back and scalloped edge before being handed over to our artisan makers in Delhi. These one-off cushions are ideal for creating interesting and eclectic schemes whilst sitting beautifully beside our new Chowa designs.
I love a Birdie Fortescue purchase. The website is easy to use, the delivery prompt and efficient, the package arrives beautifully wrapped. The cushion is great - lovely velvet on the back and scalloped piping which is why I brought it - Think I would love the velvet on both sides as I don’t like the fabric not he front as much it is a bit too mottled but I brought it to insert one of my grandmothers embroidery into so this is not too important to me. x
