Many of our crewel work fabrics are sourced from Kashmir, where they are made by hand in the traditional way by local craftspeople. The designs, predominantly floral, are embroidered onto cotton fabric using woollen thread in a rich variety of colours.
Because each piece of fabric is unique, there may be slight variations in the design and colour. The production of these crewel fabrics is time-consuming and meticulous. As a result they cannot be mass-produced and you can be sure they will not be found in mainstream shops or on the high street.
Our crewel cushion covers are backed with quality twill fabric, or plain designer fabrics, with either buttons or a zip, to allow for easy removal of the cushion pad for laundering. We recommend that our crewel cushion covers are dry cleaned to maintain their beautiful colours.
