Old Narratives Rewoven

Posted by Jac Slaney on

 Raw Luxe Collection 2020

We're delighted to announce the launch of a NEW COLLECTION of our designs - the Raw Luxe Collection. This collection offers luxurious antique and vintage textiles given the Utopia treatment to bring them into the contemporary fold.

Raw Luxe specialises in creating contemporary atmospheric interiors that exude a faded grandeur with a twist of casual chic.  The Collection celebrates the tactile and sensuous qualities of old fabrics with their natural imperfections and worn narratives. We source antique and vintage textiles that capture a palpable sense of history in their weave and drape, then mix them to create new interfaces for interior accessories - thus making enduring and unique style statements.

All the creations in the Raw Luxe Collection are one-offs, we may be able to find and make something similar that happily partners another, but none will be exactly the same.

Raw Luxe Collection: Luxury Vintage Velvet & Handwoven

Antique French Linen Cushions

Sumptuous cushions created from softly faded, vintage velvet that has been utopiaised to create unique patterns on the front face of the cushions. The velvet is 'framed' with a flange of French antique handwoven linen with a great natural slub texture. The reverse is made of the same antique fabric with a deep envelope to contain the cushion pad.

A British-made cushion pad is included in the price.

A variety of sizes are available in this design. 


Raw Luxe Collection: Embroidered Antique Linen Cushions

Little cushions created from finely embroidered vintage/antique cloths with linen envelope backs.

We love the sophisticated texture of white embroidery on white cloth and enjoy how the light plays on the surface creating shadows.

A British-made, duck feather cushion pad is included in the price.  

A variety of sizes are available.





Care for your Cushions
Old textiles require careful laundering to maintain their beauty and attractive handle.
1. Wash your item by hand using warm water and soap flakes.
2. Rinse well in warm water and dry flat.
3. Iron on reverse if necessary.


The Best of British Design and Craftsmanship

We are passionate about harnessing traditional British trade and craft skills to make our exclusive designs, so expect: well made creations with a strong attention to detail.
