When I saw the Kantha cushions on Rajee Sood’s online store, my heart skipped a beat. I fell in love with them and I pined after the white one. I emailed Rajee for more information and several sleepless nights later (over a cushion!), I decided to forego the white one (sob!) and try the red one instead.
The cushion cover is everything Rajee promised it would be: soft, delicate, bright and filled with lines of hand stitched thread. It is divine.
I had lots of ideas for where the cushion should go – my favourite carved bench in the hall; a planter’s chair, a settee…
Then, you-know-who came home from playschool and said, “That’s my pillow!” And so it has been. Rajee’s beautiful red kantha cushion became my son’s new sleeping buddy. He put it under his head, held it close to him, snuggled into its softness at every given moment. He loves the colours.
When I can get it away from him, it’ll find another home. Until then, Rajee, know that your work is admired and loved.
