More beautiful cushions from SKSN School

Wednesday, 21 April 2010

We’re really pleased to announce that we have recently launched even more cushions, handmade by older students within the SKSN School Vocational Training Centre in Jodhpur.  We have added two new styles, Rania Cushions and Kota Cushions both of which are available in square and oblong sizes.  These two new ranges offer a touch of distinctiveness to our range and we will continue to offer the ever-popular Pure Silk Cushions and Pure Linen cushions alongside these.

 

SKSN is a charitable school based in Jodhpur, northern India which provides care and education to around 500 physically challenged children.  The cushions are made at the Vocational Training Centre in the school by older students who have completed their studies.  Myakka has been working alongside the VTC for the last 18 months to help develop the production.  This fair trade project helps to give the students an opportunity to gain meaningful employment as well as develop skills and confidence for self-sufficiency in the future.  The centre also makes clothes and accessories which are sold locally.   

 

The fabrics for the new cushions were chosen by Georgie and Alexandra from the markets in Jodhpur on their last visit to the School in October 2009 and the design was finalised before they left for home.  The first batch of cushions arrived to Myakka this month ready for sale, exclusively from Myakka.

 

The new cushions are available to view online now along with the whole range of cushions from SKSN School Vocational Training Centre.  The charitable school relies entirely on support from local and international donors - to find out more about the fantastic work of SKSN or to donate funds, please visit www.sksn.org
