Hand-woven Fruit Cushions

Fruitcushions

Last year we highlighted posters by Enzo Mari from 1963 which featured bold fruit prints, to which the Pear and Apple designs in this small collection of hand-woven cushions bear a striking resemblance.

The cushions are made of pure wool with a graphic image of the fruit on one side and a stylised cross section of it on the reverse. As well as the apple and pear, there is also a lemon variation and the cross-section detail of that design reminded me of another iconic design, the Stone Roses eponymous album artwork.

The cushions are available to buy online from Couverture for the rather high (or extortionate depending on your outlook)  price of £179 for the large version, or slightly friendlier price of £89 for the smaller. Visit the Couverture website to buy.
