The loveliest, most softest cotton velvet has been dipped in a pot of avocado stone dye create a beautiful shade of blush pink before being sewn into a giant cushion and edged with a cotton fringe.

Plant dyeing is a wonderfully, slow process that takes several weeks. Before it is dyed, the fabric is soaked in a soya solution which acts a bit like a fixative, bonding the colour pigments to the fabric. Avocado stones are slowly heated in a pan of hot water to extract their lovely pink colour before the fabric is soaked in the pot for several days, gradually turning a blush pink shade. The whole process takes anything up to four weeks to complete.

This giant cushion is fully lined and is edged with an organic cotton fringing. It features a simple envelope closure at the back, avoiding the need for any fiddly zips.

The details: 50 x 50 cm | 100% Cotton Velvet | Unbleached Cotton fringe trim | Pink (a natural dye made from avocado stones)
