If I buy several boxes, will there be differences between them?
Aside from the customisable items, each box will contain the same things, but you may receive different block designs.
What will the box look like?
The contents of the box described above will be beautifully wrapped in recycled, acid-free tissue paper and placed in a part-recycled corrugated cardboard box. The box will then be secured with a sticker or tape and sent directly to the recipient without additional wrapping. We aim to use zero plastic packaging.
We pre-make our boxes, which means there is a limited quantity.
These kits will need to go to homes with sewing machines, or access to one, to sew the cushion covers.
You need to have a basic understanding of sewing to use these kits.
Vegan & vegetarian: all items are vegan apart from the wool inners, for which we have provided recycled polyester cushion inners as a replacement.
The ink provided will cover a few metres of fabric depending on your pattern repeat. These lovely inks come in a reusable plastic pot to sustainably top up your colour.
