matilda vintage cushion
Cute, colourful and cushiony, the Matilda Vintage Cushion is perfection in homewares!
Found in the bustling Pink City of Jaipur, in Rajasthan, this vintage textile is entirely hand embroidered on a charcoal base fabric. Stitched in colours of soft blush pink, blue, lilac and cream, the cushion has been sweetly finished with mirror work on the surface of the cushion. Who doesn’t love a bit of shimmer!
The reverse of the cushion is hand block printed in a candy stripe taken from our ‘Colour Me Happy’ collection. Bands of saffron yellow, sunset orange, green, blue and peach have been printed on a natural Cotton Flax, creating a textured stripe, full of colour and fun.
Block printing is a technique for the patient and creative! Designs are carved into blocks of soft teak wood and then the blocks are dipped into trays of dyes and stamped across the fabric to create the pattern. A mesmerising technique that is full of imperfect nuances!
The cushion is then finished with plain cement grey cord piping and a contrasting saffron yellow zip.
To really complete the look, pair with our Stripe Block Kids Blanky.
Soda + Stitch love our textiles, and we love being able to view their imperfections and story. These cushions may come with small nuances in their characteristics or appearance, however we see these variations in stitching or colour as a beautiful reminder as to where it’s come from and its past.
