Compost Cushion - passionfruit skin, black beans, dried purple grapes

By EasternWeft


This cushion cover is made using food waste such as passionfruit skin and dried grapes and black beans. The materials are placed onto our hand woven silk, sprayed with vinegar which helps to draw out colour. Then an iron rod is added to create a dramatic dark abstract effect which happens during the steaming process of the silk and materials.

The cushion is made of remnants of silk fabric and hand stitched together. The lining is cotton with an invisible zip. The back is raw linen.
