Shiv Textiles’ Saoirse cushion, packed with character and comfort, is affectionately handmade in Brighton by Shiv as a reaction against the ongoing textile waste caused by the fashion industry. 

Finished in a vibrant checkerboard style pattern and a unique green-yellow-pink colourway, the Saoirse cushion is the ultimate statement piece to liven any space in your home. Woven with deadstock lambswool and an upcycled velvet backing, this cushion exudes personality and is proudly the product of conscious, circular design.

In an attempt to combat the insurmountable waste caused by the fashion industry, Shiv rescues textiles destined for landfill and upcycles them into her beautiful soft furnishings. The Saoirse cushion is a product of her cause and demonstrates that beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places. 

Whether popped in a cosy nook or saved for your bed, we adore the mood-boosting colourway of the Saoirse cushion and think it would look gorgeous paired with the Emer Rectangle and Cliodhna cushions to emphasise its striking weft.

About the brand

Brighton-based Shiv Textiles was founded by Sibohan Martin in 2017. After working as an intern for big-name brands in the fashion and textiles industry, Shiv set out to tackle the issue of waste by rescuing deadstock yarns, zips, threads and buttons. Adding her creative flair and talent, she designs her range based on what she gathers from the factories and mills she works with, breathing life back into what would otherwise be sent to landfill.

Something truly special about Shiv Textiles is that Shiv herself weaves all the fabric that makes up her collections by hand on a loom in her Brighton Studio.

“Instead of following trends, our cushions and throws, scarves and purses are designed to transcend the seasons and made to last. Sustainability never goes out of style.”
