Forest Collection: 'Burrows' Cushion
The 'Burrows' cushion is inspired by animals burrowing in the earth. With earthy tones and super chunky Merino and Blue-faced Leicester wool roving, this throw is perfect for cosying up on the sofa or draping across your bed on cold winter nights.
This cushion forms part of our Forest Collection, which combines the creaminess of Merino wool roving with the fibrous Blue-Faced Leicester to create a unique collection of highly-textured, handwoven interior products. Inspired by walks through British forests, these textured throws, cushions and lampshades tell stories of caterpillars crawling through the forest, plants spiralling from the forest floor and their colours, textures and patterns.
Each cushion is carefully handwoven in our Oxford studio using only the finest materials. We select the materials that best interpret our designs, mixing wools and cottons in earthy colours to evoke the movements, behaviours, textures and colours of the plants, creatures and mini-beasts found amongst the trees and on the forest floor. We struck a balance between the fibrous texture of the un-dyed blue-faced leicester with the creamy softness of the merino.
Our cushions feature a 100% handwoven front featuring a unique design with a 100% linen backing in a contrasting colour. We have washed the cushion by hand to help with shrinkage and finished it with a concealed, bottom zip.
Every step in our process reflects our commitment to craftsmanship and time-honoured weaving traditions. We also believe in sourcing all our materials from within the UK to minimise our carbon footprint and use natural fibres whenever possible as we aim to cultivate a more sustainable practice.
