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 the UK, creates highly decorative cushions of colour and opulent luxury that you will be proud to own. She demonstrates a masterful combination of traditional and modern techniques.
Eleni starts off 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.
Her colourful cushions are pure fun, appealing to the child within us all; their pure quality appeals to our grown-up selves!
Pelopia 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 cushion is printed on good quality cotton, identical on both sides, and finished with a bright blue piped edge and hidden 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.
Made in Brighton, UK.
