About this product

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. 

These cushions are a joint venture between Better World Arts and Kaltjiti Arts, one of the art centres in the isolated Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) in the remote north west corner of South Australia. Focusing on fine art instead of predictable commercialised Aboriginal images, this cross-cultural collaboration uses the powerful images from the artists of the APY Lands and the traditional cultural craft heritage of the Kashmir region.

'Walka' by Phyllis Edwards. Phyllis describes her painting as Walka. Walka is any meaningful mark or pattern and may be an image on a cave wall, on rock or on sand and has cultural and ritual significance. It is used on the body during inma or ceremony. This painting is a bright depiction of tjukula – rockholes. Tjukula are found all across the desert. They are depressions in the rock that collect water after the rains. They vary in size, some are quite small while others are large enough to swim in and are almost like lakes. These rockholes are of high importance to Anangu as they provide water at many times of the year where other places cannot.

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.
