Expertly handcrafted Miro Inspired Throw Pillows are chain-stitch embroidery with a design inspired by the works of modern artist, Joan Miró. The abstract qualities of this piece, as well as the juxtaposition of primary colors and pastels of this contemporary cushion cover, create a vibrant point of interest for your decor. Created of soft Kashmir wool over cotton, this all-natural cover makes an enduring impression.
Catalan artist Joan Miro had a surreal, free-spirited (or unrestrained) vision of art, eschewing conventional methods, and blazing his own path in brilliant color and wild shapes across the canvas. This Contemporary Throw Pillow Cover captures that same vibrant spirit in spirals of hand-stitched Kashmiri wool, coming fair trade from India.
Kashmiri artisans work together in a cottage industry, handcrafting the entire piece from the design, to the wool, to the beautiful chain-stitch embroidery, the finest in the world. No child labor used and the contemporary throw pillows are made by highly skilled artisans making a living wage.
