There are two ways to embrace this sofa. The festival of colour and texture swaddled in this gorgeous sofa speak for themselves, so as a main focal point of a room within a neutral colour scheme, it radiates style. Or … add layers of interest and opulence with an array of different printed linens and cushions, textured weaves from rugs and wall hangings and sumptuous floor cushions, all offset with fresh greenery and natural wooden furniture. Either way it will look fabulous. The company that hand makes this wonderful sofa, covered in recycled old embroideries, is based in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. They employ up to fifty people, both men and women, thirty of whom are sub-contractors and fifteen employees who work in the factory. They are provided with medical insurance by ESI, Provident Funding, a productivity bonus and free meals when required. They are involved in the local community and celebrate festivals by donating food and clothes on a weekly basis. They also supply water for all and support some NGO's who educate the poor. They have adopted environmental measures such as rainwater harvesting, recycling and are planning a solar power plant. The supplier says "our team of employees are very friendly, and work very hard with team spirit to increase the productivity of the company. We want to spread our business all over the world and we are planning to open a retail chain all over India. We want to have 100% satisfaction with our buyers”. A noble wish. Celebrate all that is good in life with an abundance and fill your home with artisan colour, tradition and style - either way.
