Bringing world Traditional items and color elements into our new home.
By ~ Julia Behringer
I am Latina and raised most of my life outside the US, traditional items and colors from around the world just catch my eye. As I started to design our new home, I wanted to bring those elements into different spaces. These amazing colors create a peaceful, relaxing environment across modern or contemporary furniture settings. I want my home to open its arms and welcome people in, make them want to relax and talk to each other. I could not have been happier with the great quality and colors from these pillows. We get compliments and they have been a great conversation starter already.

"Kashmiri artisans have been perfecting the art of chain stitch crewel embroidery for centuries."
Any of the close-up photos of the cover will reveal its superbly beautiful and tight stitchery which means higher quality and durability. The embroidery thread is stitched expertly onto the natural cotton canvas fabric base by the finest artisans.
Strikingly stitched into each of these decorative modern cushion covers is a design based on the artwork of the abstract artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Alfred Gockel or art nouveau artist like Gustav Klimt. Each of these artists had a distinct style and it is a great credit to the Kashmiri designers who have recreated this style in embroidery work but with an original flourish. Some of the accent pillow designs are loosely based on specific works of the artists, others are simply executed in a motif used frequently by the artist or a combination of artistic elements reminiscent of the specific artist.
Any of these pieces are hand washable in cold water or able to be dry-cleaned, These throw pillow covers are all created in a cottage industry by artisans among whom this magnificent art has been passed down through families for centuries, and the handcrafter has spent his or her entire life perfecting the craft.
