The soft color and the great texture of 100% cotton make this a real snuggle-up cushion cover. The pattern is woven right into the fabric, and is the same on both the front and the back. The cushion cover is 42 cm x 42 cm and has a zipper sewing into one of the side seams.

This cushion cover was made by a member of the Karen Tribe of Thailand, working with the cooperative Thai Tribal Crafts. The vision of Thai Tribal Crafts is to trade as a Fair Trading Organization by providing development opportunities for the tribal peoples of Northern Thailand so that they can have a better life.

Seven Hill tribes of Northern Thailand are involved in the project: the Akha, Hmong, Karen, Lahu, Lawa, Lisu and Mien groups, as well as many women working in Chiang Mai. They operate under the principle of fair trade: the main goal is to pay the producers the highest price as possible and sell the products at a price that is just adequate to meet expenses. Any financial gain realized beyond the basic needs goes back to the tribal people in the form of benefits.
