As the name suggests, this particular Banana & Hibiscus Cushion Covers in raw silk is made of a combination of banana and hibiscus fibres. The hibiscus fibre is bleached using organic processes to give it an off white colour. Hand woven raw silk fabric has been used for the rest of the cushion cover. The final product is artistic cushion cover that adds elegance to your existing home décor. An excellent substitute for plastic and paper, banana fibre products are made with no electricity as it is either handmade / hand loomed by skilled women artisans in rural India. After the fruits and the leaves are harvested, the fibres are extracted from the bark of the banana tree by highly experienced women artisans, thereby utilising renewable farm resources.
No chemicals are used in the manufacture of these raw silk cushion covers.
Handcrafting banana fibre products is the source of livelihood for many women in the interiors of southern India. The women are trained by NGOs working in this area, ensuring they develop skills and earn a healthy income for their efforts. Some are trained to work on the hand loom and others are trained to make hand woven products.
Living Room Ideas: Use these artistic cushion covers as throw cushions to add a dash of colour to your living room or bed room.
