Your purchase makes a direct positive impact by empowering women and rural communities in Sri Lanka where the tradition of handlooming has been passed down for generations.
Our fair trade handloom covers are made with 100% cotton yarns and dyes that are oeko-tex compliant. Industry best YKK zippers make sure there will be no snagging or broken zippers. Packed gift ready in a 100% recycled material box.
Handlooming is a centuries old traditional weaving method where a wooden loom is used to weave the cotton yarns without the use of electricity. 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'. From dying the yarn, spinning them for spools and weaving the fabric, ZENLUSSO handloom throw pillow covers are carefully handmade in small batches.
ZENLUSSO's founders are both originally 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 strain and provide an opportunity for employment and financial independance to those most vulnerable in rural communities.
