Khaki Turkmen Embroidered Large Cushion Cover

Striking and colourful embroidery from Turkmenistan on this rich raw silk cushion cover. The khaki colour of the silk contrasts beautifully with the red, yellow, black and white of the intricate needlework.

The tradition of Turkmen embroidery is rooted in the belief that it provides a magical protection through different stages of life. Here various different trims from ceremonial garments such as the chypry are combined in a unique design. Different stitches – such as akgaima, kojime and ilme (or chain stitching) – are used, some being specific to the various peoples of Turkmenistan.

Part of our collection of Turkmen-embroidered large cushions, each piece is a one-off and a great way to enhance your home décor with an authentic ethnic talking-point! The back of the cushion cover is plain black cotton.
