This one of a kind piece is handmade using a hand dyed silk from Europe. Daria finishes the pumpkin with a hand woven and dyed metal mesh flower. Hot Skwash velvet pumpkins are handmade in Oregon by one of our trained artisans. Each piece is hand cut and sewn to order and finished with a natural stem. Our stems are specially curated varieties to ensure beautiful shapes and quality. They are all signed in gold with Daria's signature giving it our authentic Hot Skwash touch.
