OOK at a desert and you see sand. For the Kathiawadi of Gujarat, western India, the sand is a myriad of bright primary colours. Images come out of the colours, bringing life into the landscape.

 

Their needlecraft traces vines with multitudes of green leaves and many coloured flowers. Desert peacocks boldly display their pride.
Animals are included, and often tiny flashes of silver which, according to tradition, are there to reflect the glory of creation all around.

   

Embroidery like this has decorated desert tents, and in this creativity a drama of desert life has developed.

EW Kathiawadi survive as desert nomads
but thankfully their authentic sense of colour and imagination has not yet died.
    We have worked with groups of Kathiawadi who have re-settled, and strongly encouraged them not to let go of their unique visioning and their skill.

The results are here to see in Onevillage Kathiawadi cushions.
    Whether you choose the traditional bright colours, or the sophisticated cushions that are not so colourfully flamboyant – the dexterity of the Kathiawadi craft is undoubtedly plain to see.

Don't forget to order new cushion pads (pillows)
to go inside your covers.

You should replace your cushions not only for appearances sake, but also for hygiene reasons. Don't expect your cushions to perform properly indefinitely!

Our pads are specially made for us in the UK to a particularly high standard. They are feather extra-filled and have «Schedule 3» fire-retardant lining of mill-weave cotton. Our bolsters, which need to be firmer, have hollowfibre filling.

Feathers turn out to be a better bet than synthetics. Not only are they much more comfortable, but also they are the least likely to present any allergic reactions. The key is to replace the cushions every few years to ensure they remain healthy. Plump up the pads after each use so they are most comfortable for you and always look at their best. We use very soft cleaned European white duck-feather in our pads, of which a surplus exists so it is best they are used instead of going to landfill. Synthetic cushions are based on petroleum oil.
