This lovely bolster cushion in rich shades of magenta and gold is made in India using the Jamdani technique of hand-weaving, traditional of Bangladesh and West Bengal in India. Meraki is a contemporary interpretation of this ancient technique, with its heavier fabric and modern colour palette, but it retains the exquisite workmanship required to work in this style.
The weaver draws the pattern on a graph paper as a technical aid. As each row of cloth is woven, the design is inserted manually, with the weaver counting and picking up the delicate warp threads with a fine wooden tool to insert the supplementary weft. It is a time consuming technique that demands great skill, experience and dedication.
As each piece is handmade there may sometimes be small variations which add to its character and uniqueness.
