The splendour of plant-based dyes is evident in the warm shades of tobacco that grace this handmade textile. Every piece is individually woven on a standing loom by our master artisan partner. The threads are dyed with bark from the águila tree in an intensive dye process that takes over a month to complete. Every cushion is sewn on machine exclusively for our stock in very small batches. These covers are pre-washed and feature a simple envelope back opening.
This husband and wife team cover the full textile process, from sourcing local plants for natural dyes, to preparing the baths and carefully dyeing the threads prior to the weaving process. They weave on traditional wooden standing foot pedal loom, and exclusively work in this creative realm in order to support themselves and their small children.

We recommend dry cleaning this piece with a professional who is familiar with natural dyes, in order to maintain the integrity of the finishes. That said, this piece may be hand washed in cold water with mild soap. No bleach, no wringing, no washing machine and no dryer – for risk of damaging the handmade finishes. Lay flat to dry and warm iron with protective layer overtop, as direct iron may alter the colour of the piece. Though this textile has been washed and pre-shrunk, hand washing may result in slight shrinkage.
Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image. The price is for a single cushion cover – cushion insert is not included – and the palm Nudos basket is sold separately. We recommend adding a good quality insert that is one size up from the cover size.
