The subtle beauty in the Delfina cushion is the result of a week long creative process. The cotton threads that are used to create the Delfina cushion are carefully tied and then dyed, to create unique patterns in the thread. This process can take up to a week, start to finish. The fabric itself is then created on a standing foot pedal loom (no electricity in sight!) with machine sewn finishes. The black tassels are entirely hand crafted.
The Delfina cushion is available in two sizes – 40 x 40cm and 50 x 50cm. Due to the nature of these handmade products, no two cushions are exactly the same.
Please note that the cushion insert is not included with this product.
Method of production: Hand dyed cotton, standing foot pedal loom, hand crafted finishes.
Approximate time to create: 1 week (including dying the cotton thread)
The Artisan: The Mendez family have been producing quality and innovative woven products for over 40 years. Currently three generations of the Mendez family work together to design and create a range of gorgeous textiles and the family is regularly selected to participate in cultural exhibitions in Mexico. Other items in our range that are produced by the family include the Turquoise Bufanda Scarf and the Diamond Dreamer scarf.
Care for me by: Recommended cold hand wash, lie flat to dry.
Due to the nature of handmade, products may have slight imperfections or vary slightly from images pictured on this website. The Delfina cushion is created using a process that results in controlled inconsistencies in the dyed thread meaning that each and every one of these cushions has a pattern that is unique.
