vintage kimono cushions now at FOUND in Daylesford...

beautiful printed purple woolen fabric, very unusual and quite aged! i LOVE it...

what a fabulously odd design- pink and orange and grey AND yellow.

pretty blossomy red and turquoise silk print. salvaged from unpicked vintage kimono.

selection of vintage kimono cushions now stocked with 'Found', a great new design boutique up in Daylesford. full of fabulous objects and local labels, well worth a day trip... (any excuse really!) 

i have been making these cushions for a while now, mainly as custom orders and as presents for friends. i love to contrast geometric patterns and stripes with odd florals and unusual prints. the fabrics are mostly silks, salvaged from vintage japanese kimono's and obi's. each piece very unique.  

reverse of cushions feature crossover backs to insert inner (100% duck feathers and down), neutral shades and textures of cotton, linen and silks.
