* Each one is Unique

We're all a bit in love with these beautiful one-off stag cushions. The bright orange embroidered stag is stunning on the vintage kantha stitched unique saris.

Each cushion comprises of layer upon layer of vintage saris, sewn together with a running 'kantha' stitch. In Sanskrit, the word kantha simply means rags. It's a wonderful way to give new life to old saris!

Each one is totally unique due to the nature of up-cycling old saris. Some are blue, some turquoise, some golden yellow - but all are beautifully handmade - and each sari has been carefully hand picked to create a wonderfully quirky stag for your sofa!

This cushion is pre-filled with a fibre filling, (not feather).

We love pretty much anything embroidered with kantha stitch. Maybe it's from years in India - but there's something so enriching about hand kantha, or gudri stitch as it is sometimes called. In this case, the hand work is totally amazing. It is of a very high standard and vintage throws like these are becoming more and more rare to find. They have been sourced from a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers (BAFTS - see our ethical buying policy for more details) and so although they're genuinely old pieces, a fair price has been paid for each piece. If you love vintage fabrics too, then you will just love these cushions. All one offs, but loveliness guaranteed...just speak to us if you want specific colours or designs and we will try our best to match your needs.
