Embroidered Cushion Cover- Lapi Lapi Jukurrpa
This beautiful cushion cover is 40cm square and is intricately embroidered on the front with chain stitch in wool. The design is owned by Mary Anne Nampijinpa Michaels and produced by an Australian Company in a cross cultural project between Australian Aboriginal artists and a Craft community in Kashmiri, India. The artisans produce the work in remote villages to provide them with a supplementary income between harvests and other rural work. They dye and Gabba chain stitch the beautiful Australian Aboriginal designs. The cushions are endorsed by Fairtraders Australia and a license fee is paid to the owner artist for their work.
The back of the cushion is cream coloured cotton canvas with a central zip.
