DETAILS

The latest incarnation from The Way life Should be by Margaret Woodward and Justy Phillips. Indulge yourself in the bosom of our bespoke vintage souvenir cushions. Constructed from a hand sourced collection of unused 100% vintage linen Australian souvenir tea towels and linen flax, these beauties have a separate internal cushion – plump with glorious down feathers. Re-fillable and re-plushable, these are super cool and super daggy all at once. You’ll be the envy of all your friends. Think warped narratives from afar and the kinds of technicolour layering you have only dreamt of. They are in fact, quite spectacular.

We don’t make many of these, only when the whim takes us under the chin and beckons us to sharpen the scissors and let rip. In a blue moon. But worth the wait.
