Ombre Love

I have been working on some more cushion designs, this time I have been incorporating the 'ombre' dyeing technique.

This cushion is made of a beautiful soft velvet with a silky velour backing. It has been through a number of dye processes to create the perfect blend of pinks and purples. The cushion is lined and has a zip fastening.

This baby pink ombre cushion is made from 100% wool with a velour backing. It is also lined and has a zip fastening.

I will be making more cushions in this style with different blends of colours. Have a look at my Etsy website to see the range of cushions I have for sale so far :)

Did you know...
It is said that in Europe during the Middle Ages, when cushions & pillows were a status symbol, King Henry VIII banned the use except for himself and pregnant women.  The industrial revolution finally saw the widespread use of both cushions & pillows in the UK when they became mass-produced by companies in the United States, making them more affordable.
