Cushions 



Cushions are my playground to experiment with ideas, suggestions and fields of research, freely following different inspirations that change with time and mood.

In cotton or wool, embroidered or handprinted,  my work is known for its distinctive and vibrant aesthetic.

Each cushion is designed and handmade by me and is made at the time of the order.
If you are interested in a custom piece or a non-identical version of something I made previously contact me.
