Vintage Crystals Jewels Echo Silk Fabric with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

About

This cushion is a one-of-a-kind and part of a sustainability project. It has been created from an up-cycled, recycled luxury fabric, used with the intentions of promoting a more eco-friendly environment by using already existing materials. We both celebrate and cherish the past and take care with rare and precious vintage and antique materials. Through layers of carefully added backing the delicate fabric has been fortified for longevity and thus preserved. (The original designer/brand has been fully credited below) Description: Custom-made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite vintage silk Echo fashion scarf in a strong multicolored jewel pattern set against a dramatic black ground. Featuring sparkling jewels of a variety of bright colors and sizes with geometric 3D effect detail they make a very glamorous cushion. In 1923 Americans Edgar & Theresa Hyman founded ‘Echo’ scarves on their wedding day, naming the company by using his initials. The business grew and was strong enough by 1929 to survive the Depression. ‘Echo was one of the most prominent and prolific manufacturers of women’s patriotic scarves during wartime. They described the wartime culture and encouraged optimism through propaganda, many displaying instructional directions should there be an emergency. The scarves in this period used nylon and other non-essential fabric. Interestingly in 1984, ‘Echo’ became the sole licensee for Polo/Ralph Lauren scarfs and toady makes scarves for the Metropolitan Museum and MOMA. This is a very sumptuous silk, soft to the touch and in perfect new and unused condition. Perhaps depicting precious stones of ruby, yellow diamonds, sapphire and emerald. Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful dabbled effect. There are three cushions, in this set made from the same fabric, all equal in size but differing slightly in where the print falls, each sold separately. Would look fabulous displayed together and a fabulous showpieces for a modern glam interior, and also pair well with our bright yellow Cartier pillow depicting the Panthe`re bracelet. Handmade in Ireland. Color: Bright pink, emerald green, turquoise blue, yellow and black.
