Ruby Star Traders’ cushions are made from natural wool, linen and cotton.
All cushions are sold with an insert - depending on the style and price-point of a cushion, this may be either a 50% feather, or 100% poly-fill insert.
Our Chainstitch cushions are made from 100% NZ wool. Every square centimeter of these cushions is covered with a continous chainstitch, hand-stiched by villagers in rural Kashmir.
Our range also includes hand block-printed cushions, quilts and tablecloths. To create block printed fabric, a wooden block - usually no more than 20cm square - is repeatedly dipped into a tray of fabric dye, then onto the cotton fabric, then back in the dye, until the whole length of fabric has been printed. Such a traditional and labour intensive process naturally creates small variations throughout the print.
Washing and care instructions can be found on the individual labels of our soft furnishings. Some items are dry clean only, while others are machine washable.
