Mende Cushions (Style-2)


Constantly finding inspiration in the African strip cloth of the central and northern regions, this blanket uses locally sourced Merino yarns that have been hand dyed. This one-of-a-kind cushion uses the warp threads to create a beautiful fringe for added texture. The unique blue tone is a reference to the Indigo dye often used for ceremonial cloths such as marriage. The backing fabric is 100% natural hemp and has been stained using coffee to give it a complimentary natural tone.


Hanwoven section 100% Merino Wool, Fabric 100% Hemp
