Add some pizzazz to your home with one of these eye-catching African print pillows. This design is inspired by the wise African saying “What you cannot carry on your head you can most probably live without.”
Each cushion cover is hand silk screened and then hand painted to create a unique one of a kind final design. The cushions are backed in a variety of traditional African prints.
There is a story behind all the handcrafted products in our collection and our Namibian cushions are no exception. The design duo behind the range, Micha and Andrew Weir, were inspired to generate extra work for Priscilla, a young mother 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 paint the cushions. Each cushion cover is hand screen printed and hand painted so no two pieces are alike.
