SAHCO Home Collection 2015 - For the front of the TOSCA cushion, the silk is embroidered all over with an elastic under-thread – involving painstaking work by hand on just five metre pieces. The smocking technique used here causes the fabric to shrink to half its size. The result is a fine plissé in a three-dimensional structure. The smooth back in COSIMO cotton satin is made in the identical colour. The velour piping all round creates a lovely contrast.
