Cushion with wax applied
Cushion with wax applied.
These cushions are sewn by hand in a raw cotton canvas, from the cotton culture in Benin. Called "ecru", this canvas is raw is soft and unbleached. The material softens and patinates over time. It will nicely decorate a children's area, a dining room or a living room with fantasy and exoticism.
We love working with this material and this time we worked with my mother a small collection of decorative cushions with applied waxed cotton fabric called "wax" or "ankara fabric", which represents some facets of the culture of the ancient kingdom of Dahomey (current Benin) such as (the chameleon, the spinning wheel, le Récamier). All these motifs come from West African popular culture.
