About the design: Kangaroo Paws
Kangaroo Paw is the name given to a number of species in the Anigozanthos genus. There are 11 species. This spectacular plant is a perennial and attracts many native birds and insects. Native to the south west of Western Australia, the Kangaroo paw has adapted well to the Australian garden, and is also grown commercially in the USA and Israel, to be sold into the cut flower market.
About the BWA chainstitch (gabba) kilim products
These beautiful, unique textiles are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool, each is a completely handmade piece. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists’ and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these products guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: These cushion covers feel great and are fabulously hardwearing – we can vouch for that.
Do not put place/use in direct sunlight or colors may fade. To clean – dry cleaning recommended. It is possible with careful hand-wash in warm water using a wool detergent. Creases can be ironed out on a wool (low) steam setting.
