Large Pucci Silk Scarf Cushion Pink Blue Yellow Pillow with Irish Linen
Custom made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion (pillow) created from a beautiful silk Pucci fashion scarf in a striking iconic Italian Pucci pattern. With dramatic sweeping swirls in a colour palate of fuchsia pinks, yellows and blues, it makes the most elegant cushion. Framed like a work of art in a pretty matching boarder which has an exotic and almost Egyptian style to the detail. In a thick silk with twill texture luxurious to the touch, and the original Pucci label attached onto the linen back. Found at ‘Alfies Antiques’ market house in Marlybone North London. Born in 1914 to one of Florence’s most illustrious families, the Marquis Emilio Pucci di Barsento's success rose after designing sleek ski suits for his friends. His psychedelic prints in vibrant colours, emblematic of the 60s, are inspired by underwater photography (another of his hobbies), and can be seen quite clearly in this refreshing piece. The designs feature sensual, free-flowing lines that follow the natural curves of the body displaying effortless elegance. Whilst other fashion designers produce scarves to complement their collection, Pucci’s scarves are considered of equal importance to the clothes. The Pucci brand became so successful that he had to incorporate his signature into the pattern to avoid imitation. Note the repetitive ‘Emilio’ signature appearing throughout the fabric in our cushion running along the flowing lines of the design.
Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful dabbled effect. A wonderful and instantly recognisable addition to your interior. Would go great with some of our colourful antique art pottery.
