Iskander (Accent Slipcover) is the Arabic name for Sikander or Alexander the Great of Macedon who, by the age of 30, established one of the largest empires of all time, which extended from Greece to India. Our Iskander, too, is a young, handsome loner – a hero in his own right. Alone he stands apart and is a classic piece – an Accent that needs nothing in his entourage to spotlight his presence… to ‘Pop’ so to speak! He can be bought alone, or he can be bought at the helm of a retinue of products that complement him and form one garrison, or one fine collection.
Our Benarasi brocade fabric is from Benaras itself – one of the six districts of Uttar Pradesh where this brocade technique is found (and nowhere else in the world!), in accordance with Geographical Indication (GI) rights won by local weavers in 2009. Since Mughal rule, when silks, brocaded textiles, and other luxurious fabrics were in high demand, and when trade and exchange with Central Asia flourished, Benarasi brocade has been established as a design aesthetic and weaving technique specific and exclusive to the master craftsmen and weavers of Benaras.
Easy to wash, easy to clean, easy to slip-on and slip-off, and has a conveniently concealed zipper at the back. It makes for a stunning overcoat for your furniture and lends variety to your living room. Certified Master of Fun and Function.
