Fabriqué en France- les housses de coussin arrivent

Well, a bit later than planned, here are the first of my cushion covers made from old fabrics.

I plan to use at least 50% vintage /recycled fabrics and embroideries on these cushions.

I am offering the option of covers only on etsy to keep postage costs down, but I can supply them with pads for an extra fee!

For more details, see our etsy shop top right.

I currently have stock for cushion covers in a heavy indigo and natural linen ticking stripe, pink on natural linen with mid grey, white linen with pale blue edging and a very old ( indeed antique) natural canvas with the wear and tear of at least a century!

Many will feature these surface mounted gorgeous dentelle zips with aged brass tags sourced here in France. Plus I have two very special needlepoint panels to make up with medieval style “The Lady and the Unicorn” fine detail embroidery; these are based on the tapestries at the-

Musée de Cluny — Musée national du Moyen Âge

I have a deep turquoise kimono fabric to make up also.
