Bespoke

 

Once in a while you need something that's genuinely unique. Whether it's a cushion for
a particular interior or a memento for a special occasion, I can help. For instance,
perhaps you really like a fabric I've used in a coffee cosy but you really want a cushion;
or you love the style of the lavender bags but you'd prefer something a bit less...orange. Or pink - basically you want blue. It could be as simple as wanting a different coloured back to a cushion. Get in touch either by email here or via the contact form here
and let's see if we can work it out.

 

Please note that bespoke orders are non-returnable and non-refundable.

1950s fabrics

Apart from a few exceptions my 50s fabrics are in a heavy, soft weave known as bark cloth.
The weight makes it best for cushion covers although it can also be used for bags and purses as long as they're not too small. Their age means it's best not to wash them too often and to do so gently by hand. Specialist dry clean is also an option.
