Up-cycled cushions from vintage embroidery

These cushions are made using vintage Danish needlepoint and embroidery. Re-crafted to honour the love and effort put into the embroideries, and to give them a stylish new lease of life.

Cushions often come in sets of two or more with a common theme.

Discarded treasures found in Copenhagenʼs junk shops and flea markets are carefully unpicked and separated from their original setting.

Each embroidery design is sewn onto a backing before being bordered by cloth in complementary colours.
