Size: 40 cm x 40 cm (16 x 16 inches)
Fabric: wool (front) and cotton (back)
Color: this cover is even more vibrant and gorgeous in real life. NB: The cushion is regular, sometimes my photography isn’t.
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.
About the design: Kulama
The Kulama ceremony was given to the Tiwi people by the Nyingawi who are little spirit people (in Tiwi mythology). It is a celebration of life and food, occurring at the end of the wet season. The Tiwi know when to perform Kulama when the last full mooon of the wet season has a yellow halo surrounding it, which tells them that Japarra (the moon man) is ready for it to begin.
