Fair Trade handloom made in Sri Lanka. 100% cotton 18"x18" throw pillow cover sets of 2
What is Handloom?
Handlooming is a centuries old traditional weaving method where a wooden loom is used to weave the cotton yarns without the use of electricity. Many of the artisans have had their skill passed down for generations. From dying the yarn, spinning them for spools and weaving the fabric, ZENLUSSO handloom throw pillow covers are carefully handmade in small batches.
Our looming partner based in the hometown of our co-founder is a World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) Guaranteed Fair Trade Enterprise. This means it is recognized as 'mission-led; putting people and planet first'. Artisans are paid fair wages to ensure a good standard of living. We are proud to enable employment and training in rural villages of Sri Lanka. The majority of our weavers are women who depend on handlooming as the main source of income to sustain their livelihood.
We only use the best in industry YKK zippers. They are renowned as the most reliable zipper. There is no snagging, teeth separating or the zipper getting stuck with the YKK zippers hidden under a flap on all our covers.
No cheap polyester or stiff acrylic blends. Our throw pillow covers are made from pure 100% cotton for maximum comfort and durability. The cotton yarns and dye colors used are independently tested by a third party (KISCO of Singapore) to meet the requirements of OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and be free of harmful chemicals.
ZENLUSSO's founders are both from Sri Lanka. Given the recent political upheaval that started in March 2022 with the country declaring bankruptancy, we decided to source products from Sri Lanka to ease the financial strain and provide an opportunity for employment and financial independance to those in rural communities.
Due to handmade nature of the covers, please allow for some unique variations. There might be slight imperfections in the weave that only adds to the authenticity and beauty of our covers being truly handmade and not mass manufactured in a factory line.
We also do not use any harsh chemicals that are skin irritants to pre-shrink as part of our OEKO-TEX compliance. We make our covers 1 inch bigger on both sides to allow for any shrinkage from hand washing.
