Continents of comfort are provided via these cushions. Available in a set of 3, the world map cushions are made from cotton and created via the Batik technique. A traditional textile art involving a wax resist dyeing method to produce patterns. Like with the appearance and texture created by the ground nuts on the surface of my world cake, I love how the batik effect gives the continents an added depth and interest like that seen on a map. Handmade in South West India they not only add a striking addition to any interior, but the money made via the the website Uncommon Goods helps the greater good by providing fair wages and development opportunities for the artisans who create them.
