The olive cushion with beaded star motif is a highly decorative and beautiful cushion with a rich olive green background which makes a perfect base for the detailed embroidery and beaded design.
This type of embroidered and beaded work is traditional of the St Catherine area in the south of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. Every stitch and each bead is made and stitched by hand creating these lovely motifs.
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.
