Handprinted, handmade botanically 'eco' printed cushion cover and cushion pad [CU03].


The hemp linen upper side was botanically 'eco' printed sustainably, by steaming in my trusty fish kettle with catalpa, walnut  and japanese acer leaves, marguerita daisies,  hand dyed with pomegranate skins and iron.


The heat and moisture in the botanical  'eco' printing process released the plant pigments and transferred them to the hemp cloth which was prepared with aluminium acetate mordant and a light iron  solution. The logwood dye was applied by a 'carrier' blanket.


I prefer to work with hemp because it is one of the strongest and most durable natural fibres available and its cultivation has a relatively low environmental impact compared to cotton. 


The grey under side of the cushion cover was made from upcycled brown furnishing fabric. 


The cushion pad is filled with recycled polyester.
