Palopo Puruwat Cushion
Wicklewood X Mola Sasa
Wicklewood X Mola Sasa is a collaboration which celebrates a kindred aesthetic - vivid colour, vibrant motifs, impeccable finishing and aligned philosophies - preserving artisan traditions, sourcing sustainable materials and working with local female artisans to empower women. This square cushion, crafted in red, cream and yellow is handmade by the Guna Dule indigenous women and is inspired by Wicklewood's original Palopo zigzag design and Mola Sasa's Puruwat best-seller clutch. The female artisans use an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form the intricate Palopo design.
This cushion measures 50 cm x 50 cm, has an oversized down insert to ensure maximum comfort and an invisible zip in the bottom seam.
All of the Kuna Textiles are made in Colombia in the Caiman Alto Reserve by Mola Sasa's artisan women partners of the Guna Dule community. For generations the artisan women have passed down an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form an intricate piece of art. Each fabric is the specific design of the artisan woman who carefully works on it. The Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others offer a more abstract design.
The Kuna Textiles are then brought to England where they are crafted into cushions. Each one is backed with Wicklewood’s namesake fabric and our signature contrasting trim is added to make each piece even more special and idiosyncratic.
