Beautiful and cheerful cushion

Sumi Lumbar brought light and warmth to my living room, it matches perfectly with my yellow couch, it is also elegant and I can’t get enough of it and its fine fabric and details.

Great quality

Very happy with this pillow. Looks great, size is perfect, and is comfortable. No complaints. In general wish that citizenry would cut out the drawstring pillow cases that they send pillows in - seems like an unnecessary addition to their carbon footprint.

Nice quality

This pillow is really pretty on my couch, paired with the similar one in navy and two floral pillows. The design is delicate and the coral, mustard, and navy on cream look beautiful. The weaving work is well done and the pillow is firm and supportive without being too stiff. I’m pleased with this purchase and am happy to support traditional textile artists in India.
