HEIRLOOM FIBRECRAFT cushions include single production, handcrafted 'Art Series' designs and digital art series which are commercially printed.
Art series cushions are handmade with all-natural textiles and dyes by distilling extract from Australian native plants. This colourfast technique relies on direct contact between leaf and textile by applying pressure and heat.
"The aroma of citrus fruit and heated Eucalyptus oils fill my senses as I unwind the string that presses the textile surface against the native plant foliage. Over 40 species of Australian plants (Grevillea, Melaleuca, Acacia, Mallee and more) offer an abundance of beautiful natural dyes (minerals which are released when heated). The outline of the actual leaf is imprinted onto the cloth in exact motif and design composition. I select premium quality, all-natural textiles” (Kim Shipton).
