Damask Cushion in Red
We are huge admirers of late 14th-century tapestries, largely because of the uniquely wonderful way they depict clothing. The weavers who created these works had such skill that they could capture the nature of fabric, with its textures and folds, almost in three dimensions.
For our Damask cushion, we focused on a tiny part of such a tapestry: a fragment of a nobleman’s gown. Recreating it in needlepoint, we took great care to incorporate the folds of the fabric that had been so expertly rendered in the original tapestry.
With its over-embroidery in metallic thread (replicating the gold brocade in Italian damasks), and its deep red hues, our Damask cushion screams opulence.
DIMENSIONS: 40cm x 25cm
