Roughly translated from the Sanskrit, Anjali means gift – the name is appropriate. The glorious wood block print on this square cushion makes it a welcome addition to all sorts of interior decorative schemes, bringing a bohemian lightness of touch to sofas and chairs.
A brief history: in the early 16th Century the Moguls took Delhi and Agra, and gradually spread south across India. In their wake the Mogul love of botanical art took root and a highly decorative, now familiar style emerged, with instantly recognisable motifs. In this Anjali cushion the blue and pecan flower heads have blossomed into lozenges, more familiar to us as ‘paisley’. The motif was widely used in the West, revisited in the 1970s and has again become popular.
