With a long-standing passion for traditional hand-crafting techniques, and skilled at modern digital printing too, print designer Eleni Malami, who hails from Athens but is now based in Brighton, creates highly decorative cushions of colour, opulent luxury and pure fun! She demonstrates a masterful combination of traditional and modern techniques.
Eleni starts each of her botanical-inspired designs by drawing or painting free-hand, instinctively and spontaneously, with water-based pencils and inks, before adding colour with watercolour paint, marker pens, and inks, then digitally manipulating these forms to wonderful new effect. Multi-talented, she then makes every cushion herself, drawing on her fashion background and her stash of trimmings.
Evadne is a painterly watercolour design inspired by a botanical drawing of Ficus elastica, the Rubber Plant, rather more abstract than Eleni's other designs. This square cushion is printed on good quality cotton, patterned on both sides, and finished with a purple piped trim discretely concealing a zip.
Materials: 100% cotton, zip closure, fibre insert
Dimensions: H:45cm, W:45cm
Care: Hand wash only
Note: Due to the hand-crafted nature of this item, there may be slight irregularities; each cushion is unique.
