Handmade Mudcloth Cushions - A Story in Every Thread
Our Mudcloth cushions originate in West Africa, where each colour and motif carries profound meaning, representing aspects like marriage or birth. Symbols vary across regions and tribes, resulting in an array of captivating patterns. Crafted from cotton and adorned with mud and vegetable dyes, each cushion is a unique work of art. The handwoven cotton and dyeing process may introduce subtle imperfections, adding character to these exquisite cushions.
Poufs & Pillows' collaborates with its artisan cooperative in Marrakesh, where it continues to create these beautiful pieces while investing in the personal development of its craftsmen. We take pride in ensuring that every purchase directly supports the artisans behind your stunning cushion. This commitment is vital in preserving the rich traditions of this craft for generations to come.
Please note that the cushion comes without an inner cushion. We advocate for an eco-friendly approach—consider filling it with a cushion you no longer use or repurpose old clothes. If you prefer a pre-filled cushion, reach out to us, and we'll make it happen!
