The Story of the Vintage Hemp Cushions
These Vintage Kilim Hemp Pillows are ethically handmade from sustainable hemp fibres in Turkey. They are a creation of Parisian designer Nadia Dafri. The hemp cushion covers have a plain organic cotton back with removable back closure. Each piece is unique.
The story of hemp is that of a sustainable fibre. Hemp is one of the fastest growing plants and among the most eco-friendly fibres on earth. Hemp requires little water and doesn't rely on pesticides to grow well. Apart from being non-toxic, recyclable and biodegradable, the fibre is also known to have high strength and durability. Pure hemp has a texture similar to linen.
The story of Nadia Dafri is that of an adventurer. Initially destined for another career, Nadia Dafri travels around the world meeting artisans to listen to their stories and discover their workshops and techniques. These experiences bring her collections to life. For Dafri, every trip is a discovery, and every discovery is a source of inspiration and creation. Her history is constantly written, stitching together delicate embroideries and subtle weavings liberated from the dictates of fashion.
With a fine sense of ethics and respect for the expertise passed down over the generations, Nadia Dafri revives ancestral embroideries in a resolutely modern textile collection. From New York to Saint-Tropez, Tokyo and Paris, her collections are sold all over the world in the best-known and most demanding concept stores and multi-brand boutiques.
The cushion is sold without filling. We suggest to use old, unused cushions or clothing to fill the cushions.
