Wow! These 2 pillows are made from a pair of Rabari chaklas (wall hangings) that are the most exquisite quality. The stitching is tiny and beautifully executed and the mirror work tight and neat. The chaklas would have taken hundreds of hours to make and work of this skill is not found any more. Many of the designs that are sewn later, substitute ric-rac  for some hand stitching and this saves the needle woman quite a lot of time. But not these ones, all hand done! The chaklas are approx 19"" square so will make good sized statement cushions. The backs are plain vintage hemp. There are a zip fasteners and feather pads. They look fab in a neutral setting and I like these orange colours with blues as well.

These textiles are large, exquisite and very rare and this is reflected in the price of the cushions. The chaklas were made as a pair and I would prefer that the cushions were kept as a pair if possible.
