Properly life-changing cushions.

I'm loving these cushions. Not only are they brilliantly designed and super well-made (click onto their shop to see the close up views), but they're embroidered by prisoners in their cells, organised by a charity called Fine Cell Work. You can sponsor a prisoner to be trained to embroider for just £50 in return for a cushion. Another awesome Christmas present alert. If you're going to invest in cushions, best to do it here, I'd say.


If you're in London, they're having a sale and exhibition today at Leathersellers’ Hall, 5 St Helen’s Place, EC3A 6DQ, between 1.00 – 6.00 pm.

  1. That's so funny, my gay dad is on the board for this and was telling O and I all about these last week...cool cushions indeed xxx

  2. Weird! Imagine if we'd bloggered them on the same day? I did some work for a charity who give legal aid to death row prisoners and these guys were involved. The cushions are truly great as well! I think I will invest.

  3. So glad you've moved on from the cheese - that was making me want to do a blitz on the local deli. Nice cushions - one for Fred and one for Hoops.

  4. These are gorgeous - I love them. I'm trying to remember where I came across them before, but drawing a blank.
