Our Saheli oversized cushions combine a beautiful mix of naturally dyed block print fabrics from Bagru, India, and the exquisite embroidery of Saheli Women, our NGO partners working towards female empowerment and fair trade employment for underprivileged women in rural Rajasthan.
Every cushion was designed and brought to life by a member of Saheli Women during their COVID lockdown in mid-2020, allowing the women to continue to work and gain a vital income from the safety of their own homes while unable to come together in the Saheli Centre in Bhikamkor, India. Giving the women free reign to design their own cushion means that every piece is unique and a work of art that showcases their traditional embroidery skills, all while also empowering them through the art and creativity of design.
The Saheli cushions are designed to fit a European size pillow insert. *Insert not included (cushion cover only)
60 cm x 60 cm
Due to the delicate nature of the embroidery and the natural dyes used in block print, we recommend a gentle hand wash (cold water) only.
Tulasii works with Saheli Women, an ethical fashion social enterprise run by the incredible grassroots nonprofit IPHD in the village of Bhikamkor, rural Rajasthan, India, employing over 24 rural women, providing them with fair wages, health insurance coverage, and a safe work environment free from gender, religious, and caste discrimination. Every piece sold from this collection is ethically made, and helping to change lives. You can read their story on the Tulasii journal HERE
