It’s always so exciting to see a painting go from an image in my head, to a watercolour painting on paper to an object you can touch.
I haven’t spared anything with this new luxury range of cushions. Everything from the fabric to the ink to the zip and back was chosen for a reason.
Coral-orange, turquoise & black are the colours I’ve been obsessing about lately.
The fabric is soft and cuddly, and won’t fade in the sun, because it’s a mixture of linen and cotton which makes it incredibly durable. The natural oatmeal colour, makes it practical and won’t show dirt marks as quickly as a white fabric will (parents will love me for this :)).
Then the print is made using natural inks that can be washed and ironed over – although I always suggest ironing on the revers. And the best part is that it’s soft to the touch, unlike screen printed fabric.
And guess what? Shipping in South Africa is still FREE.
If you need any more convincing, just look at the beautiful photographs of the cushions done by my husband, Louw: http://store.toucheefeelee.co.za/ranges/cushions (click the image to see more of each cushion).
If you’re in Cape Town, come and say hi at The V & A Waterfront. I’m in a pop-up shop in the Red Shed until the end of December!
