Khadi & Co, Throw and cushions, Herringbone
Khadi & Co is a collection by Danish designer Bess Nielsen inspired by Mahatma Gandi's Swadeshi, a movement promoting Indian goods he started in 1918. When she founded Khadi and Co in 2004, Nielsen wished to convey the true spirit of khadi, and promote the remarkable skills of Indian weavers. Khadi & Co products are made with Indian textile techniques such as block printing, ikat weaving and tie dye, but the simple, modern style comes from her Scandinavian background. With silks, wools and cottons, Bess has produced a selection of homeware, clothing and accessories that blend her Nordic heritage with her passion for India.
100% cotton cushions and throws handwoven in a herringbone pattern with a chunky twill in natural white and charcoal. Fabric is heavy and textured, but soft to touch. Cushions available in two sizes: 50 x 70 cm and 65 x 65cm.
