Digital Printed Dastarkhawan (Kitchen Store) cushion by Mehria. 

The illustration depicts a traditional Chitrali kitchen store, where women keep all their domestic utensils, and cooking pots.  

‘I used to sneak in with my best friend Kausar and steal biscuits and sweeties from the store as a child.  During Eid celebrations, we were given boxes of mithai (traditional sweets) from our relatives, which my mother would place in the store. We keep everyday kitchen items and use this space for jugs, teapots, mugs, lanterns, glasses and steel boxes that store rice and flour.

The store is made of mud. It stays cool in the summer and warm during the winter.  I also wash the dishes and make chapatti there during the winter, as it protects me from the bitter weather'.
