The Qura Fringe pillow checks all the boxes:
- carefully woven by hand by a real, live person;
- made of only natural materials – no toxic chemicals polluting you or the environment;
exploitation-free – artisans work at home, on their own schedule, and earn what THEY decide is fair for their work;
empowering – women-run artisan associations provide opportunities for leadership and economic independence;
culture-promoting – the Upis pillow is woven on a traditional backstrack loom, keeping that cultural tradition alive.
