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: 'Water Hole' by Alice Dixon Nampitjinpa. This is the way the water runs off the sand into the much needed water hole where it stays for a long time. The travellers and animals can find water here.
