Irene's Cushion Covers are one of our best sellers for many years. They are hand embroidered in India using 100% wool on heavy gauge cotton. Each piece is individually done and is based on an Irene Klar design/painting.
The covers are 18" x 18" in size. If you like the additional filling: we offer a locally made cushion filling with quality down feathers from happy ducks, for only $35. Select from a number of cover designs below.
Irene Klar has been painting professionally for over 35 years. She received a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Alberta in 1977.
Although she began her career as a watercolourist, she is also a printmaker. She has numerous silkscreen editions and she is an accomplished etcher. The book, Common Threads, features Irene Klar's etchings and explains the printmaking process.
Irene Klar divides her time between Alberta, Canada and Arizona, US with lots of time for far-reaching travels. The common threads of colour, pattern and textiles have inspired her paintings for over 30 years. She has found inspiration in places around the globe from North Africa to India, South America to the Alaska coast.
