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.

Melia is a playful, ethnic-influenced design of leaf motifs in a repeat pattern. It was inspired by vintage textiles of the 1800s, a time when fabric commerce between Asia and Europe was growing and there was a resulting influence in the aesthetics of fabric. This square cushion is printed on good quality cotton, identical on both sides, and finished with a light brown pom-pom trim discretely concealing a zip.

Materials: 100% cotton, polyester trim, zip closure, fibre insert

Dimensions: H:45cm, W:45cm

Care: Delicate dry clean only

Note: Due to the hand-crafted nature of this item, there may be slight irregularities; each cushion is unique.
