The Babylon Collection | Blue & Red Flower Suzani Cushions

· · · Comments
This hand made suzani cushion collection was inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. This mysterious wonder, whose existence is often disputed by historians is said to be built by King Nebuchadnezzar to cheer up his homesick wife, Amyitis. The gardens were described as “vaulted terraces raised one above another, and resting upon cube-shaped pillars. These are hollow and filled with earth to allow trees of the largest size to be planted.”. For Babylon, a city that rarely received rain, a garden of such height and splendour meant that the water had to be carried from the nearby Euphrates River. Not only was building such a garden in that time was immense effort, sustaining it required extra care. The flowers, leaves and the water of the gardens are reflected on the cushions in this suzani collection.
The suzani cushions in this collection are double sided with naturally dyed ikat fabrics. All of our suzani and ikat cushions are filled with feathers from the UK and lavender from Provence to give you extra relaxation each time you lay on them.
