People are often very interested to know what materials our products are made from. So, here are a few details! The base fabrics of our cushions are a soft, grey, hand loomed, organic cotton and for our new (coming soon) larger cushions we have sourced a cross weave organic cotton. These are gorgeous and have slight variations, which I believe adds to the hand made feel.
The felt used throughout our collection is eco-fi felt. This is becoming more readily available in the UK now. It is produced from waste plastic bottles. A perfect felt for interior and craft use. All the scraps are kept and used for cards or tiny pieces.
The leather details are made from scraps, which I order in bags from a leather factory. We never know quite which colours we will get, so colours may vary slightly in each design.
Every piece is lovingly finished with hand stitching!
