Velvet Cushion - Where the Wild Teasels Were Amber and Umber
Dispacus Fullonum or the Fullers Thistle was once widely used in textiles processing. The finishing of the cloth was called fulling and the teasel provided a natural comb and raised the nap on the fabrics.
A teasel gig was a curious invention mixing man made with nature combining the hand process of the pass and the precision of engineering. The machine consisted of 3000 prickly teasels in an iron frame powered by electricity. The teasels where carefully sourced from Somerset and a teasel man would travel from mill to mill renewing the teasels in the gig.
Where the Wild Teasels Were is a design tribute to the thousands of teasels used before being replaced by metal brushes in the 20th Century.
Where the Wild Teasels Were woodblock print has been translated onto the luxurious British velvet to make this elegant cushion. It is so soft and smooth bringing both comfort and glamour into any home. The pattern is repeated on both sides and finished with ruche.
Why not fill with a cushion filler made from recycled plastic bottles, they are softer than you think, anti-allergens and great for the planet!
