We have a beautiful collection of wool cushion covers from Better World Arts in a variety of sizes featuring bright and beautiful First Nations designs. The cushions are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri handicraft. The chain-stitched (Gabba in local Kashmiri) cushion covers are hand stitched in remote villages in one specific region of Kashmir and the Aboriginal artists of Better World Arts own this project bringing direct benefits to the artists’ and their communities.
