Size of cover; 40 x 60 cm.
The Atlantic Puffin (fratercula arctica) is the most common bird that nests in Iceland. It is found on islands and grassy cliffs along the coast. The Puffin, which is a migratory bird, is commonly nicknamed the pastor in Iceland due to its distinguished appearance.
Puffin couples nest in burrows where both parents keep a home for their single chick, which is called kofa or pysja in Icelandic. The couple separates during winter but reunite in spring, returning to their busy family life. It is hard to say if the separation is the key to the Atlantic puffins successful relationship, but studies show that puffins mate for life.
It is hard work feeding sandeels, caplin and various invertebrates to the hungry chick. At the end of the day the puffin therefore enjoys ta well-deserved break with his neighbors, as seen here. The chick leaves the nest in August and flies towards the sea. However, many lose their bearings. In the Westman Islands, South of the mainland, it is customary for children to collect the confused chicks and guide them to the sea.
The front of the cushion cover is made of 100% cotton satin with high quality durable smudge-free textile printing. The satin has a matt-finish and feels very soft and comfortable. The back is made from sturdy 100% cotton twill in black color. The covers have a zipper on the back.
The cushion covers are sold without a cushion (filler) and each cover is packed separately in a beautiful gift box.
The cushion covers are made by Icelandic dairy farmers that live in a farm in Northern Iceland. They specialize in high quality textile products and their main product line consists of various types of cushion covers with photographs from the Icelandic nature.
