Limited Edition Khadi Cushion - Blue Check Rectangle with Ric Rac
Our wonderful new Limited Edition cushions are made from panels of traditionally made Khadi fabric. Khadi is an ancient form of hand loomed fabric, usually made from cotton or fine linen. The technique dates back to the Indus civilisation and became extremely popular in the late 17th century when the East India Company were importing thousands of pieces of fabric into Britain each year. As demand grew, mass production increased and 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.
Birdie carefully selected each piece of fabric along with its backing and trimming before handing it over to our artisan makers in Delhi. The charm of this collection is that no two cushions are the same. Each piece will slightly vary depending on where the fabric was cut from the panel. Our makers have ensured as little wastage as possible by using the selvedge and embroidered offcuts as appliqué panels on other pieces.
