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: In this Dreaming story, two dog ancestors, a Jampijinpa and a Napangardi, travelled from the west to the east.  At Tapu (a rockhole), the two dogs separated.  The female dog, Napangardi, went to the south.  The male dog, Jampijinpa, went to the north.  Eventually he became lonely and howled for Napangardi in the south.  She came running to him, and they married each other at Ngarnka.
