A 40cm square silk dupion cushion digitally printed with a vintage photograph and backed with black cotton velvet.

Handmade in the UK this digitally printed silk cushion features a hand illustration alongside a beautiful vintage photograph of a 1920's May Queen among oversized poppy seeds and delicate eyed-hawk moths. Subtle hints of pink and blue are picked up by the light within the tranquil sepia photograph whilst the young girl’s far-off expression creates a mysterious allure. The soft colours are sure to compliment any home interior and will be a beautiful gift for any new home or alternatively as a unique wedding gift for that special couple in your life.

The design is digitally printed onto 100% dupion silk, a luxurious textured silk with a delicate shimmer. It is backed with plain black 100% cotton furnishing velvet, a soft pile fabric made to last well. It has an envelope opening on the back fastened with a large mother of pearl button. A spare button is also included.

The cover measures 40cm x 40cm (16” x 16”).

The cover can be ordered with a duck feather pad included (UK and EU orders only) which can be removed for washing, or with no pad included. A 45cm x 45cm feather pad is recommended if you are buying your own.

Dry clean only is recommended although minor stains can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent.

Digital fabric printing is an exciting new technique that creates a lot less wastage than screen-printing, supporting my ethos to produce products as ethically as possible.

The design is part of my Curious Kingdom collection, inspired by an eclectic range of sources indulging in vivid, fantastical ideals, suggestive of a vintage children's storybook. All my designs are unique, stemming from my very own illustrations.
