Individually designed and handmade thistle cushion
The design of my thistle cushions are inspired by the rich colours of Scotland. Each is therefore quite unique and individual. I use mostly 100% soft wool fabrics and either a thistle or paisley pattern in these designs.
I could not ignore this wonderful Scottish flower. Common throughout the highlands, islands and lowlands of Scotland, the prickly purple thistle has been Scotland’s national emblem for centuries. This proud and regal plant, which grows to a height of five feet, has no natural enemies because of the vicious spines that cover and protect it like a porcupine. It has been said that the plant represents bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery. It’s vibrant pink or purple color represents royalty, and nobility of character.
I source my fabrics from small weavers and wollen mills across Scotland and the British Isles, international fabric houses and designer brands to ensure quality.
Brighten up your home and allow your thistle cushion to reflect your personality by choosing designs that speak to you. Complete your bedroom or sofa with cushions that deliver rugged elegance. A mixture of sizes, colours and patterns will ensure your cushions don’t look out of place. Match your cushions to the colours which already exist in your room. Include varying shades of that tone ranging from light to dark.
In conclusion, whether your thistle cushions are a design statement on your favourite sofa or dressing a bed I hope that you and your home enjoy them.
