Cushion - Irene Mungatopi - IMU146

$75

This traditional Kashmiri handicraft vitally supplements an often fluctuating rural income. Wool is custom dyed to match the original artist's image and hand stitched onto a cotton base. Each cushion is backed with natural coloured cotton canvas, and closes with a zip. 

During Ceremony on the Tiwi Islands a series of “Yoi”, dances are performed, some are totemic (matrilineal) and others act out newly composed songs. Participants are painted with turtiyanginari (natural ochres) transforming the dancers and protecting them against mapurtiti (spirits). These designs are collectively called Jilamara.

Dimensions: 40 x 40cm

Plain or printed, cotton or linen we’ve got you covered. All cushions come with an insert and hidden zip making it easy to spot clean and change up the cover whenever you fancy.
