Handwoven Takia Cushion Cover – Orange
Bold and contemporary, our Takia cushions combine Harris Tweed with organic Kala Cotton. Bringing together hand woven cloth from two very different corners of the world, they celebrate both the common threads that bind these weaving traditions together, as well as their distinct cultural heritage.
Made from 100% pure virgin wool that is dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland and then handwoven by islanders at their homes.
Kala Cotton is indigenous to the arid region of Kutch in Gujarat. The crop is purely rain-fed and has a high immunity against diseases and pests, which means there is no need to use pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, making it organic by default.
Handwoven fabrics are soft, durable and breathable – many of these properties are due to the human handling of the yarn during the weaving process. Looms are operated and powered by hand or foot, so no electricity is required to make the cloth, resulting in the process being ecologically sound.
