Majnun (Armchair slipcover) is insane. Driven crazy by his love for Laila, his tale is the inspiration for innumerable poems, ghazals, and paintings through the ages. Our Majnun is a dapper lover who does best when paired with counterpart Majnuns and better still, when paired with Laila! The romance of these two has its origins in the deserts of Arabia, but people in India believe that the couple finally eloped to Rajasthan where they were buried in the village of Bijnore in Sriganganagar district. Thousands of young lovers from all over the country visit the village in June to commemorate their love.
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.
