Hemp Cushion Cover – Natural Hemp Linen
As our hemp linen has been sustainably sourced, this hemp cushion cover is a great alternative to cotton or synthetic fabrics that often make up the fabric of cushions. In this way, this beautiful striped cushion would be an excellent choice for those determined to make a deliberate commitment to protect and preserve our planet.
Hemp linen has many redeeming benefits that make it the perfect material for cushion covers. Its natural antibacterial qualities ensure that it is resistant to mould and most types of bad odour-bearing bacteria. Its UV resistance means that it can withstand direct sunlight without losing its colour – definitely useful if you plan on using these cushions as furnishings in your outside dining space. Three times stronger than cotton, it is a very hard-wearing, durable fabric, meaning that it can stand the test of time without losing its quality. Not only will your cushion cover also be 100% machine washable, washing your cushion will actually help it to get better over time, as the material gets softer with every wash it receives.
The striped cushion features a striped Roma design that is minimalist and unimposing; wide stripes that showcase the fabric’s natural fibres can be found on both sides of the cushion. These stripes have been hand-printed through the intricate process of printing with blocks of hand-carved pear wood.
Despite the age-old process that has been passed down generations, the striped design itself isn’t incredibly complicated, meaning that the beauty of the hemp linen fabric is not overpowered, and your cushion is all the more likely to seamlessly fit into any environment it finds itself in.
The colour used by the striped design is called Rosso Porpora, one of the most popular colours used in Ancient Rome. The colour of the cushion has not been altered – it remains the natural deep beige colour of hemp. As well as pairing very well with the deep pink colour of Rosso Porpora, the rustic beige colour adds to the hemp cushion cover’s authentic, handcrafted look and feel.
This cushion cover’s unique identifier is not just that it has been made from 100% natural hemp linen, but that it has had its stripe design adorned and has been entirely crafted by hand by the Stamperia Bertozzi linen house artisans. Having developed their technique since the 1920’s, the Bertozzi family continuously produce stunning hand-printed and hand-printed designs for your pleasure. Every pillow cover has been made with care and precision to uphold a standard of quality that doesn’t go unnoticed. True passion and artistry goes into every single item they produce.
As this item has been produced entirely by hand, variations in finish or appearance are to be expected. Rather than being considered imperfections, they are marks of a unique, handmade item.
As always, we will be very happy to help you with any queries you may have.
Also included in our hemp linen collection is our hemp linen throw that features the same Roma design. By pairing the two, you can create an ambience in your space that is truly unmatchable.
