The cushion with embroidered hearts and stripes is a beautiful decorative cushion with a plain black background which makes a perfect base for the gorgeous bold and dramatic colours of the traditional embroidery.
This type of embroidered work is traditional of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt and is used to adorn items of clothing worn by the indigenous bedouins of this region. It's great to also see it on items of home decoration like this cushion.
As each piece is made entirely by hand, there are variations in size, pattern and colour which add to its charm and should be considered a mark of the artisan who made it. No two pieces are alike, though many can be grouped or used together beautifully.
