Raw Luxe Collection: Luxury Vintage Italian Richelieu Embroidered Cushion 10"/26cm (4)
A lovely little cushion, with a hint of faded grandeur, created from an exquisite piece of vintage Italian Richelieu embroidered cloth with 2 layers of antique Hungarian hand woven linen. The embroidery depicts a lady in traditional Italian dress. The front is 'framed' with a double flange of antique linen with a stitched frayed edge. The reverse is made of the same antique fabric with a deep envelope to contain the cushion pad.
Richelieu embroidery is a type of cutwork lace which was popular in the 14th to 16th centuries and then in the mid-nineteenth. It features fabric cut outs edged with buttonhole stitches and connecting bars.
All our cushions bear our branded vegan leather label on the back plus a washing instruction label inside.
A British-made, feather cushion pad (filing complies with BS 5852 part 2) is included in the price.
Dimensions: Cover including flange 30 x 30cm
Cushion pad 10"/26cm
Raw Luxe Collection
The Raw Luxe Collection focuses on creating contemporary accessories to enhance 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.
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.
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. All our cushions are made in Norfolk by professional seamstresses.
Please notethat the colours on our products are reproduced here as accurately as possible, however, as with all photography, printing and online screens, there may be some small variations.
Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries in the UK mainland. If purchasing from outside the UK please contact us for a shipping quote.
Care for your Cushion
Old textiles require careful laundering to maintain their beauty and attractive handle.
