“This exuberant Gauguin-inspired, over-sized cushion is a painting on wool. A palette of 18 colors expresses the passionate mix of tropical flora. The knitting is much easier than you might think; large blocks of color are knit in the multi-color detail is embroidered on after knitting using a large back stitch (or leaf stitch) and then the cushion front is felted. This impressive piece is a perfect fit in both classic and modern interiors.”
