Japanese kimono + indigo shibori, silk ikat fabrics from Turkey + Azerbijan, Mexican blankets, Afghan wedding pockets, Balinese batik and lots more... 'A love of fabrics and how they express culture through pattern, colour + materiality has led me to collect many different examples from around the world on my travels and through my work. These are now available through The Design Commission's new project called Strangers Bearing Gifts. Choose ready made items like cushion covers or throws, or let us create a bespoke item or installation for you. Combine kimono + ikat silks for a unique double-sided cushion cover. Choose Japanese obi as wall hangings. Frame an antique ikat jacket. The only limit is your imagination.' Jacqueline Bosscher

Stock updated regularly so come back again, or ask us to collect something specific for you.

Cushion inserts provided by us are made in Sydney of recycled PET fibre derived from 100% post consumer water bottles. It looks, feels + performs in the same way as a high-grade synthetic poly fibre, and is 100% non-allergenic, but is completely recycled. For every 1kg of fibre created, around 70 water bottles are saved from landfill. Alternatively, we can provide inserts made in Sydney of 100% biodegradable & compostable, naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial corn fibre. With a very low flammability rating, this fibre has excellent moisture management properties. In manufacturing, when compared with virgin petroleum-based plastics, more than one tonne of CO2 emissions is saved per tonne of fibre. This equates to 60% less fossil less usage when compared to traditional synthetic poly fibre production.
