Our Te Huia cushions are right at the top if you are looking for sustainably made gifts so we were chuffed to see them featured in Your Home and Garden's Christmas edition for all to see! Check out what they had to say:
"A quick scroll on Pinterest will show you that there are some clever folks out there making awesome things from materials that would otherwise have been biffed. Old sheets, timber offcuts, vintage suitcases, floorboards from broken-down baches...Where we may have seen trash, they see treasure. Seek out pressies made in a sustainable manner and feel good about doing your bit for the environment.
These gorgeous cushions are made from recycled fabric by members of local Iwi in the Taumaranui area to help fundraise for youth to take part in the Inzone Educational project, which gives Maori and Pasifika young people the opportunity to live 'in zone' for high-performing schools in Auckland. "
Each cushion is a completely unique hand-made wonder! Laboriously hand cut and pieced together from upcycled blankets and discarded fabrics, they are then finished in detail with a simple and careful blanket stitch.
Take part in this fantastic initiative with us by purchasing your very own hand-stitched, up-cycled, feel-good cushion...not to mention they just look so good!
