This limited edition Amour Cushion Cover is handcrafted by artisans in Dakar and was designed by CSAO.
Each cushion features a different Senegalese background pattern, in an assortment of available styles and colours, all embroidered with the word ‘Amour’.
Inspired by the Senegalese tradition of brides-to-be embroidering words of love on to pillows that will fill their new marital homes, the cushions are available in three worded editions, ‘Je T’aime’, ‘Mon Cherie’ and ‘Amour’, in an assorted variety of patterns and colours.
CSAO established an atelier in Senegal that provides artisanal knowledge and skill to the women of the Dakar community, empowering them by teaching and paying them for embroidery skills that they can turn into prospering livelihoods, while encouraging them to take on paid apprentices to pass the techniques on through generations.
This sustainably sourced and crafted Amour Cushion Cover would make a bright and unique edition to your home.
Please note: Due to the nature of handcrafting, the pattern of each cushion will vary and may differ to the pattern pictured. There are nine possible background patterns for the cushion, which cannot be confirmed at the time of ordering. For more information, please call 0207 589 7401 or visit our Chelsea store.
