I’ve been looking on the internet at Australian designers and artisans selling vintage fabric cushions and I’m sharing my list of favourites.

First is the fantastic Funky Fabrix website.  In addition to a great range of ready made cushions they also have a custom made cushion service. You can choose from a huge range of fabulous vintage fabrics from their sister site 100% Vintage. My favourite vintage fabric cushion is this one.

I’m pleased to say my website page, Fabulous Vintage vintage cushions, came nearly top in Google’s ranking. My hard work on S.E.O. has at last paid off. My favourite Fabulous Vintage cushions are of course Floppy Poppy and Rhea, both are vintage Sanderson fabrics.

Sally Campbell’s gorgeous website is also a favourite. Sally has some beautiful vintage fabric cushions made from vintage handmade textiles as well as amazing vintage throws. Sally sources her handmade textiles in India and they are made by artisans. All quilts, throws and cushions are either ‘hand-dyed’, ‘hand-stitched’, ‘hand-woven’ or ‘hand block-printed’. As a result they fade naturally and imperfections are part of their charm. Here is a selection from Sally’s website.

A quick look on Etsy and I find Moth Cushions, a range of one of a kind and limited edition, beautifully crafted cushions. Each cushion is created from vintage and retro fabrics, bedspreads, curtains, tea towels and tablecloths sourced from linen presses around the world.
