Cushion backs are handwoven in a plain weave using the same yarns to quietly complement the textural cushion face fabric. After washing and steam pressing the cushions are constructed with a concealed zip, with care instructions inside. Scoured and carded New Zealand wool sourced after strength testing is repurposed in this product as fill for the cushion inners, offering superb loft and support. To lower freight costs all cushions may be purchased without an inner, with a $15 NZ reduction in price per cushion. However, please check that an inner of suitable size and quality is available locally for you to purchase.
