Each cushion uses luxurious Indian silk douppion, a medium weight silk with a slightly textured effect and subtle sheen that changes colour depending on the angle. The cushions come in a variety of colours and some have contrasting colours on the back and front. A discreet pocket is sewn in to the back of each cushion, which is where the notebook and pen live or an affectionate message can be hidden.
Every cushion is decorated with vintage or antique ribbon, some dating as far back as the 1800s. Find out more about the story of our ribbons here.
The silk – chosen from 200 different colours - is hand cut and matched to the ribbon. Discreet zips are chosen to match the silk and enhance the design. The cushions are cotton lined and the edges over locked. The cushion insert is filled with duck feathers.
Every cushion comes with a care label sewn in the inside (dry clean only and iron on very low heat). A woven label with a logo and unique serial number is sewn inside the pocket. This number will be entered into a vintage 1930's ledger along with the date of sale, your initials, location and photograph of the cushion.
