The Bessy Cushion Cover is a pattern taken from a series of hand drawn illustrations showing strange and powerful characters, decorated heavily with symbolism from different cultures and countries. Life, death, food, animals, the supernatural and old folk tales are apparent inspirations on closer inspection of the details.
How Its Made
Silkscreen printed by hand in Amsterdam in a GOTS certified studio, each cushion is printed 6 times to achieve the pattern. The cushion is 100% fair trade cotton and printed with eco friendly Magna inks which are non-toxic and water-based, giving a soft feel and matt look as well as a greener way of printing. The cushion is 40 x 40 x 10cm (when filled), machine washable at 30 degrees and will not fade over time. Due to the hand made element of the work, there may be slight differences in the pattern.
