A luxury, statement piece for the home.

From a new range of cushions, conceived during lockdown when there was no access to a print room. An exploration of colour through different textures and surfaces.  Hand dyed silk noil base with hand dyed silk habotai ribbon, which has been stitched into ruffles. The movement of the ruffled line came intuitively when piecing the elements together. The back is a plain red French linen with an invisible zip across the bottom.
