The "Family" pillow cover is inspired by the works of Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous and influential artists of the modern era. It depicts a family of four cats against a backdrop of shimmering purple and a crescent moon. It is a celebration of all that a family stands for in the sense that even though the four cats in the design look entirely different from each other, they are looking in the same direction with a similar sense of wonder in their eyes.
Picasso (along with Georges Braque) developed a unique style known as analytic and synthetic cubism. His works convey a unique sense of depth and motion - a style that brought his work on the world's wall of artistic fame. Unique cubism inspired motifs along with a vibrant color palette add a splash of color to your living space. Fine quality silk threads make it soft to the touch and the raised swirl texture of the embroidery adds an interesting dimension.
Use it to breathe life and artistic energy into any room. It is perfect for a living space couch, home office sofa or that special chair you sink into with your hot cuppa after a long day's work.
It would make an ideal gift for family and friends who appreciate art and beauty.

Kiffa beads are rare African powder glass beads, named after the Mauritanian city of Kiffa, and were first documented in 1949 by French ethnologist R. Mauny. They represent one of the highest levels of ingenuity and artistic skill in the art of making beads as they are created in open fires using simple tools and recycled from materials like pulverized European glass beads or their fragments, bottle glass, pottery shards, tin cans, twigs, steel needles in combination with gum arabic.
