Square Cushion - Ecru Checkerboard Velvet


This simple, timeless cushion is highly versatile. It provides an excellent base to an assortment of cushions, and commands attention on its own equally well. A very good couch cushion, it also functions well on dining chairs and as an addition to the bed.

Structured and firm, Klay cushions are designed and made with endurance in mind, thanks to the methodical handiwork. Hand-crafted layers (and unparalleled composition) make Klay cushions resilient and comfortable.

The soft, supportive cushion inners are made from recycled fibre flocking, wadding and batting (a blend that is 80% wool), covered in calico, each is hand-trussed, sculpted and steam-moulded into its final shape. Klay cushion outers are made from cotton and velvet. The cushion outer features an invisible colour-matched zip and can be removed and washed.

Made in New Zealand.

Sensitivity and practicality are at the heart of Klay, a small business that commands respect for the process and skills that are integral to high-quality making. A true family operation, founder, designer and lead maker Kirsty McLay works closely with daughter Hannah, who helps realise Kirsty’s vision. This familial ethos extends to Klay’s community of makers, retailers and customers, with Klay items found in homes around the world. Klay encourages consideration from its community — countering disposability, and instead encouraging appreciation and a care taking approach to objects.
