Turkmen Embroidered Tapestry Cushion

This unusual long cushion uses a suptly patterned cotton tapestry base with a striking long trim of intricate embroidery from Turkmenistan.

The tradition of Turkmen embroidery is rooted in the belief that it provides a magical protection through different stages of life. Here a single long trim from a garment such as a chypry adds a touch of class 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 backing of this intriguing cushion is a continuation of the patterned cotton, and the filler is included.
