After 5 years of exclusively designing women's accessories we have decided to venture into the realm of homeware to bring you all of the freshness and sophistication of our accessories into your interior space.

With our unique and eye catching juxtaposition of patterns and textures, this cushion was created with fabrics made by the women of the Guna Dule indigenous communities using a rich appliqué technique of hand sewing cut layers of fabric. This art form has been handed down from generation to generation and is used to make abstract or figurative designs.

There are only 2 units available per style.
