Inspired by the gentle giants in South Luangwa National Park, this hand-painted decorative pillow features two elephants depicted in a mix of earthy tones. Hand drawn and hand painted with rich color by the artisans of Tribal Textiles; made with 100% African-sourced cotton with a back vent closure.
While the overall design and technique are the same, each artisan has his or her own way of starching and balancing colors, making each pillow unique. Details and colors will vary slightly from image shown.
Pillow cover and included pillow insert measure 18x18. Wash cover by hand or machine in warm water with mild detergent, and hang to dry.
Tribal Textiles provides sustainable employment, fair pay, training, and a pleasant working environment for more than 100 Zambian men and women.
All the work is done by hand on 100% African-sourced cotton—including the time-intensive drawing, sewing and painting with natural pigment colors—yielding exquisite, high quality textiles. Individual designs are hand-painted, drawing inspiration from the stunning wildlife and surroundings at the edge of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. After baking in an industrial oven, the stunning textiles are color-fast and fully washable. The fabric is washed and dried in the Zambian sunshine, ready to be sewn into stunning pillow covers, table runners, bags, and more.
