Details

Yellow birds emerge from a red and purple forest in this beautiful design. From talented members of Women United for Artisan Development, the cushion cover is woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Cording defines the borders, and the back is solid red.

Should one of the threads snag, the artisans suggest you pull it back into place from the back of the fabric with a fine crochet hook.
