This lovely pair of vanilla-colored cushion covers feature front panels crocheted by hand by members of the ArtFio Artisan Association of Brazil. Each crocheted front is a pattern of four squares, with a four-petal flower in each square, and is backed with matching vanilla-colored cotton. The same fabric forms the back of the cover. A zipper makes it easy to insert a cushion.
In the small town of Sao Goncalo do Amarante, knowledge of their specific crochet technique is passed down from generation to generation by the women of the families that are part of the association.
Their work has been seen on national television programs and in newspaper articles, especially when the artisans began to decorate trees in the community with their crochet for Christmas festivities.
The ArtFio recently became a NOVICA artisan group. They are working hard with the hope that this opportunity will help them grow and provide more income for their families.
In 2012, The Association of ArtFio Artisans was awarded as one of the 'Top 100 Artisans of Brazil' by the government.
