Individual pieces handcrafted into a circular pattern, creating a vibrant cushion cover for your space. The front of the Katran cushion covers are made out of 100% up-cycled colourful cloth pieces and hand-knitted by an inspiring women’s self-help group.
Katran in Hindi means small pieces of left over colourful cloth, which is the by-product of cloth mills. These same cloth pieces are collected by farmers during their low seasons, spun into ropes, sold and weaved into traditional Indian day beds. Now the same vibrant material has been used in an innovative way to create contemporary products that are sustainable and beautiful. In the designers' own words: "Buying our Katran products won't save the world, but it's a step in the right direction".
