House of Hopstock digitally print floral velvet cushion cover in Staffordshire, and the sumptuous material is woven on Britain’s last remaining velvet mill. As a result, you would not be surprised to hear that the quality and colourfastness is superb. Most importantly, and above all, the feel is simply dreamy.
The design for this bird print is inspired by sensational women past and present, and is named after British fashion stylist extraordinaire Isabella Blow (her husband used to refer to her as a rare bird). The cockatoo Issie represents Isabella Blow, the toucan Frida represents Frida Kahlo, the penguin Luisa represents Marchesa Luisa Casati, and the puffin Dita represents Dita Von Teese.
