Maisie Utting specialises in sourcing secondhand natural fibres, dying these fibres by hand with either foraged plant material or plant dye extracts. Once dyed the small batch one of a kind colours are transformed into stitched products for your home.
Combining two different weights of antique linen dyed with Madder root. The linen is soft with age and the quilting creates a rippled surface to the piece. On the back of the piece you will notice how the dye has moved across the surface of the fabric creating a dappled effect across the surface. The cushion is quilted using a bright red vintage cotton thread.
Each cushion takes approximately five hours to create from start to finish.
Machine pieced, hand quilted using cotton thread with a hand cut and hand stitched double binding to finish.
All cushions are small batch or one of a kind pieces that have been made to stand the test of time.
Materials - Outer 100% hand sourced & dyed antique linen

Due to the nature of the materials there may be some areas of unevenness of dye across the surface. These textiles will mellow and soften with age. Keep out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
Please note this listing is for the cushion cover only.
Cushion inner is not included. Due to the nature of the hand made piece, please take care when inserting the inner. I would advise using 45x45cm cushion inner.
Due to the age of the materials I would advise hand wash only for these pieces.
