The smooth 8oz (270gsm) cotton canvas is brilliant for printing full colour and fine line illustrative designs as well a bold solid logos. By cleverly combining print colours to co-ordinate with existing furnishings and themes a very smart and stylish cushion cover is affordable. This larger square cushion which measures 45 cm wide by 45 cm is generous. The concealed zip at the back gives the cover a smarter appearance than a simple scatter cushion. It also allows an easy change of pad and in addition, for sewing bees who are dab hands with a sewing machine, its possible to stitch right round the cushion cover giving a 'mock' piped effect for refinement and special effects! We have worked with our supplier with the aim of ensuring colours do not transfer to other items, but this is always a possibility with such strong colours. Please take care.
