Adagio is a large quilted luxurious pillow sham that comes in beautiful jewel tones. Truly, music woven in fabric to soothe your slumber and wrap it in luxury. Part of the Ekantha Luxury Collection.
Elaborately hand-embroidered on the front with a cross-stitch design patch. Matching plain fabric on the back. Quilted on top. Zip closure on the back, cleverly hidden. Only a few of each kind are made, and so you will not find these in any mass-produced retail outlet. Unique and distinct.
Expensive? When you consider that our tribal workers are paid by the fineness and quality of their hand cross-stitch and the actual number of the cross-stitches on the fabric, you understand its value. Each stitch is a labor of love and time.
Hand-wash or machine-wash inside-out on delicates setting.
Pairs beautifully with our matching bed runners, "Cadenza."
