Harris Tweed and Liberty of London pin cushions. Plum herringbone Harris Tweed and Manuela pink Liberty fabric
We recently added a few cushions to buy after having a commission to furnish a beautiful old chapel. We had a little bit of the piping left over and we made a pincushion. A handmade piped pincushion that looked like a cushion for a very small house. The back has a contrasting Liberty fabric backing to it and, using the same fabric, a pipped edge.
Handmade, cut and stitched each one is individual and unique.
Harris tweed comes in a myriad of beautiful colours. It is a fabulous material to work with, hard-wearing and will last a very long time. I love working with it; the colours, the texture and the history behind ‘The Cloth’ is amazing and well worth the love and attention I put into each of my creations. Each metre of fabric is still made in the traditional way on looms that have been in families for generations. No electricity is used to power these looms, only the legs and arms of the artisans that reside in the Outer Hebrides.
