These exquisite recycled wool cushion covers are handwoven in a stylish herringbone weave. The soft grey and white wool threads create a really beautiful fabric. One pair, each sized 45x45cm.
The cushions covers are hand made from discarded wool garments. All the buttons, zippers and poppers are removed from the garments, leaving only the wool. The wool is then sorted into colours ways and ground into a very thin fibre. This fibre is then mixed with a binding agent to produce new wool yarn. From this stylish new products can be made, that can be used again and again.
The cushion is hand made from 80% recycled wool and 20% polyester. (The polyester is essential to bind the recycled wool.)
Nkuku were delighted to receive the award for ‘Most Ethical Business’ in the Business Values Category at the 'Make' awards ceremony held in Soho, London in 2011.
