I saw this cushion cover on Amber Interiors Shoppe and fell in love with the layout. I loved the vertical and horizontal aspects of this vintage textile. I’m always a sucker for linear design.

I also knew I wanted to incorporate some intricate bohemian art. So I got busy drawing and eventually ended with this carving.
I hand-stamped the finished product multiple times to ensure that each print was slightly varied resulting in unique repeats. Then I scanned each piece and digitized them-orientating them in a linear and vertical fashion similar to the initial inspiration.
I had multiple rounds of colour sampling (as pictured below) before I eventually ended on these four colourways: Cyan, Prussian Blue, Terra Cotta, and Sky.
This textile took me months upon months to create. First, with the creation of the initial intricate bohemian-like art, to carving it, to hand-stamping it, and finally, to digitizing it and laying it out in a fashion that I felt completed the design. I’m so delighted with the finished product and hope you treasure it as much as I do.
