Remnant Weave Cushions to Support Heritage Crafts
Rose is pleased to introduce cushions that have been handwoven in the UK with Rose Uniacke fabric remnants. In 2 sizes: Small 60 x 60 cms and Large 90 x 90 cms.
The inner pad is handmade with 100% British wool, which is a natural, eco-friendly and healthy alternative to hollowfibre and feather fillings.
Due to the nature of the remnant use, the cushions are not 100% replicable and will change with the remnants available at the time.
There is now a wall hanging also available 120cms wide x 200cms high
This project combines sustainability, design and craft and we're delighted to donate all profits to the Heritage Crafts Association to help support and promote traditional crafts in the UK, many of which are now endangered.
The HCA Red List of Endangered Crafts now lists 56 crafts as critically endangered, meaning they are at serious risk of no longer being practised in the UK. These include damask weaving, fabric pleating using moulds, and frame knitting. A further 74 are listed as endangered, with enough craftspeople to transmit their skills to the next generation, but with serious concerns about their ongoing viability.
