We’ve named this Plum & Belle cushion cover the ‘Chinoiserie’ as a nod to its dual heritage. The front is made from a beautiful antique Chinese bed cover, dyed with indigo and patterned with a resist-printed placement design. The back is a deliciously heavy, antique French linen. Each cushion cover fastens on the back with three large antique shell buttons.
This limited-edition, exclusive product has been created from a single piece of indigo fabric which has been cut to not only create the most beautiful placement design on each cushion, but also to leave us with only the smallest amount of fabric unused (which is now in our pile for future projects). The linear, resist-print pattern shows a pair of birds alongside some minimal floral designs. The fabrics used are handspun, well-loved and well-laundered textiles, so there are occasional slubs and slight colour variations, which we think only adds to their beauty.
Size: 50cm x 47cm. Takes a standard 55cm x 55cm fill (not supplied)
Our values and this specific product
- Limited edition
- Minimal waste, pollutants and emissions
- Made in the UK
Indigo is a colour that fades over time and can sometimes transfer on to other materials. Although we have pre-washed this fabric, please take care if placing it in close contact with paler textiles. All cushions are sold without a fill. Cushion cover fits a standard 55cm insert. There is a spare button provided with each cover. All cushion covers can be washed cold, on a delicate cycle (taking great care of the fragile, antique buttons) and allowed to air dry.
