Embroidered wildlife story cushion no. 27
Shipped by Hadeda
From Hadeda's range of unique story cushions from the Mogalakwena Foundation in the remote north-western region of the Limpopo Province, South Africa. Each is hand-embroidered to depict the lives of the women who create them - illustrating scenes of day-to-day life as well as indigeous plants and animals, all through the medium of craft. Each cushion is 'signed', giving each craftswoman a sense of ownership over their creations.
