Natural Padding and Cushioning
Only the finest quality horsehair and natural cotton are used to create the padding for your piece. The result is a unique expression of sculptured comfort and firmness.
There is a reason we insist on natural materials. Horsehair has a curl and resiliency that makes it ideal for padding. Unlike manmade foam, which disintegrates within a few years, horsehair will provide you with impeccable service for centuries.
It’s a truly hidden art. Our horsehair padding is hand-stitched between layers of burlap, covered with glazed cotton batting and finished with a tightly woven layer of fine muslin. This provides a smooth and elegant canvas for your goose down and horsehair cushions.
Our handmade cushions are hand-stuffed to suit your personal preferences. Select a filling of luxurious 100% goose down or traditional horsehair. Or opt for a sturdy blend of poly-core, down wrap and inner springs.
Famed for its ethereal softness, 100% goose down is the traditional choice for heirloom-quality furniture. Our all-horsehair cushions or poly-core cushions with down wrap provide a firmer, but equally luxurious, foundation. We can also add soft steel springs to fully maximize support.
Our artisans create each hand-stitched cushion and pillow only after your piece has been crafted and upholstered. By doing so, we are able to obtain a perfectly tailored fit. This gives leave for our seamstresses to provide the finishing touch.
