Kachchh Embroidery - 16" Cushion Cover - Sodha Rajput - Puja

$139.95

Nothing can bring your home to life like an embroidered cushion cover. Elegant, playful, colourful, or subtle. These cushion covers provide a stage on which stitch work absolutely sings. 

The Sodha Rajput community used to live in Sindh, Pakistan but have now mostly migrated to Kachchh, India.  They are primarily farmers but with their migration from Sindh as late as 1971 during the Indo-Pakistan war, they have been left with some of the least fertile land.  They brought with them their embroidery, and most importantly their exceptional embroidery skills and designs.  Sodha embroidery is strong and durable with geometric, curvilinear lines and full of flowers, birds, animals and figurative motifs.

These embroideries bring the richness of desert cultures into your hands — heirlooms for the future. Each embroidery is a unique expression of the woman who made it.
