CUSHION // Tusah, hand dyed, LONGIFOLIA I [60cm]
The front panel is made from 100% Tussah which is dyed in Eucalyptus leaves in hues of oystery-mushroom and green. A subtle lineal weave adds depth and texture. The reverse side is made from cream coloured Tussah fabric with hidden zipper access. A quality full feather cushion insert is included.
Maker's technique: "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 (Eucalyptus, Grevillea, Melaleuca 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. Every dye outcome is random and unique; influenced by the season and age of the plant” (Kim Shipton).
