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.
This striped cushion has been created using three different madder root dye baths, the stitching across the white stripe is dyed with foraged acorns. The vintage cotton is soft with age and the quilting creates a rippled surface to the piece. This piece took approximately five hours to create from start to finish.
Machine pieced, hand quilted using hand dyed 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.

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. Would advise using a 40cm by 40cm cushion inner.
