Owls Handmade Wool Cushion is the design of London based Dutch designer Nicolette De Waart. She made her foray into the animal kingdom, producing a sculptural menagerie of creatures, hand-crafted from high-quality wool and offered in friendly pillow form. “Wool is tactile, malleable and workaday, so it seemed the ideal material for me to work with – and I hope viewers will respond to the graphic simplicity of the end result.” The Owls Handmade Wool Cushion looks stylish as a sitting room piece or as a cushion.
