This cushion is inspired by the by the wise African saying “What you cannot carry on your head you can most probably live without.”
Each cushion is hand screened and then hand painted to create a unique one of a kind final design.
Guaranteed to add the WOW factor inside or out, these dark pink African design cushion covers are backed in a variety of African prints and no two backs are the same.
I came across these vibrant cushions covers whilst on a road trip in Namibia many years ago. The design duo behind the range, Micha and Andrew Weir, were inspired to create the cushions to generate extra work for, a young mother Priscilla, who had been diagnosed HIV positive and had lost her housekeeping job. As she became weaker she wanted to be productive and so combining their creative knowledge with their ability to screen print, Maid in Africa was born. Sadly Priscilla has since passed away but the company continues to employ out of work domestic workers to hand paint the silk screened cushions in colours of their choice so no two pieces are alike.

Feedback from a recent customer:
” I bought five hand-painted Namibian cushion covers from Maud interiors and I’m incredibly pleased with them. These covers are very vibrant and beautifully made, each colour combination picked by the artisan”.
