40 x 40 cm
FABRIC: The front has been screen printed by Smitten Design in Auckland, on 100% linen. This particular piece of fabric was an off-cut, just big enough to make into a small cushion. This cushion is a one-off!
The reverse side is in the plain spice colour, made from quality European linen (flax) fibres, made into fabric by a family-owned business in Hong Kong, compliant with China REACH regulations. (This is modelled closely on the European REACH regulations, focused on improving the health of workers and environmental effects by regulating the use of hazardous chemicals in manufacture.) I source this fabric through a NZ company committed to sustainable practices.
Both fabrics have been laundered for a relaxed look and to prevent further shrinkage.
A pure duck feather inner gives a full, high quality look. The inner is made from New Zealand duck feather inners which have been responsibly sourced, a by-product from ducks farmed in the Waikato. Tightly woven down proof cotton cover for durability and form. A premium product. Note that you need to contact me about shipping costs because this is a bulky product, so please contact me for a quote. firstname.lastname@example.org
CARE: Dry clean or gentle machine wash at 40 deg. Hot steam iron. Do not bleach or tumble dry. Protect from strong reflected or direct sunlight. Do not rub stains.
WHO MADE THIS? A woman in my community, helping to support their home-based businesses.
MORE: Linen and hemp are sound choices for textile use, requiring minimal chemicals in their production (hemp requires absolutely no chemical sprays during the growing cycle), and neither require additional irrigation. The entire plant is used for production so there is no waste. Cotton, while a natural fibre, takes a significant amount of water and chemicals to grow and process into a yarn, so I will only stock organic cotton products.
