Artisan Cushion Cover. Hand dyed organic cotton/hemp blend in subtle pink hues extracted from fresh avocado skin.
Reversible with 2 unique hand painted designs bringing a pop of colour!
Hours of love have gone into creating each of these, it's a 4 step process!
- Soy mordanting. The fabric is soaked in freshly made soy milk for several hours. This is high in protein, which acts as a natural mordant as it assists the dye in binding to the fabric (improving colour fastness).
- Each piece is then hand dyed in dusty pink dye extracted from avocado skins and seeds (the seeds are high in tannin which also assists with colour fastness).
- Then they are individually hand painted and heat set.
- Finally the cushion is sewn together!

A bit about hemp...
Incredibly strong | very absorbent | a naturally antibacterial fiber | long lasting | kind on the environment | softens with use just like linen |
Care instructions: Please handle with care. Both the fabric and the dye will appreciate an environmentally friendly detergent in a cool wash. Direct sunlight will cause the natural dye to fade over time.
