“I ALWAYS MAKE SURE ALL MY CUSHIONS ARE HIGH QUALITY, FRIENDLY TO OUR PLANET AND BEAUTIFUL TO ENJOY EVERY DAY.”
Designer & maker – Egle
HOW IT’S MADE:
This textured cushion is handmade using a punch needle method which is a traditional rug weaving technique creating small loops. Punch needle embroidery is often referred to as thread painting, since it can be used to create beautiful artworks. The basic concept is simple; you punch the yarn through a fabric with a hollow pencil-shaped needle, and it leaves tufted loops of yarn over the top of the fabric. The tightly packed loops create pressure that holds the piece in place.
This cushion is handmade in London, UK from a natural 100% wool yarn. With a heritage stretching back to 10.000 BC, wool is a fiber that has withstood the tests of time.
Wool is 100% biodegradable, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of months or years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Wool is naturally safe. It is not known to cause allergies and does not promote the growth of bacteria.
Hand wash in lukewarm or cold water. Iron with a wet cloth over the top.
