This traditional Kashmiri handicraft vitally suppliments an often fluctuating rural income. Wool is custom dyed to match the original artist's image and hand stitched onto a cotton base. Each cushion is backed with natural coloured cotton canvas, and closes with a zip. Please note cushion fillers are not included. Royalties are paid to the artists for sales of this product.

Story:  The main motif of this painting depicts the Wakirlpirri (Dogwood - Acacia Coriacea) tree.  Wakirlpirri is a very useful tree that grows on the sides of creek beds and near Mulga trees.  The seeds can be eaten raw or they can be cooked on the fire and a dliciously sweet drink called Yinjirrpi.  The wood can be used to make Karli (boomerangs).
