Types of hand-embroidered cushion covers
It’s true that among the best in class are the radiant Kashmiri hand-embroidered cushion covers. These are crafted by skillful artisans with intricate details in the motifs that gives them a depth like nothing else can. Over seven different shades of threads can be used in one floral motif to bring out a truly exquisite look on a cushion cover.
There are two types of Kashmiri hand-embroidered cushion covers:
Wool embroidered cushion covers
Here the thread used for the embroidery is woolen and colours are muted and classy. The cushions are embroidered using chain stitches. The designs on the cushion cover can be floral – a bunch of flowers with leaves or one large flower taking center stage. Some cushions have geometric patterns as well. There is an understated elegance to the cushion cover.
Silk embroidered cushion covers
Here the thread used for embroidery is silk and the colours are more vibrant and brighter. Silk cushion cover designs can be floral as well – big and bright flowers in various colours, sometimes just one flower surrounded by a contrasting background coloured. There is a sheen to the finished cushion cover.
The material used to make both these Kashmiri cushion covers is a mill dyed cotton fabric called dasoot. This could also be mixed with wool to make a slightly warmer version that makes the cushions more comfortable in cold weather.
