Method of production: In order to achieve this gorgeous design, the first step is to naturally dye the cotton threads using a resist dyeing technique. The threads are tied in such a way that when they are dyed the areas that have been tied are resistant to the colour staining process. After the dyeing process, which utilises plant based dyes, the threads are untied and woven on a backstrap loom.
Duration: Approximately 1 week to create.
The artisan: This cushion is the work of the Chinimaya Women's co-operative in Guatemala which currently has 34 active members. The collective utilises all natural dyes in the creation of their beautiful products.
