Tasselled Village Pillow Cushion

A lovely vintage gudri work pillow cushion made with cheent cotton fabric. The central portion of the cushion has a simple floral print on a bright red background. The bands around the centre are charming with colours changing mid-way. The plastic pseudo-shells and beads and silver threaded tassels provide the perfect finish to this eccentric piece.

Made with ‘cheent’ a rural fabric popular in villages in India and Pakistan, the pillow cushion uses the Gudri technique of quilting multiple layers of fabric with running stitch. Used widely in rural India especially Gujarat and across the border in Pakistan, it is a cost effective way of recycling saris and other fabric into bed linen and other household accessories.

This cushion is sold with the filler and can be used on a divan, on a sofa or pretty much anywhere! Handmade eccentricities and some wear with age should be expected.
