Tassel is the soft, attractive new player slotting into the ranks of ethically made homewares. Bali based and kiwi powered, designer Claire Piper has chased her passion for organic cottons, gentle dyes and a commitment to fairtrade to the beautiful island and a local family’s tailoring business.

These are a few from their latest collection; “Holy Smoke” – loosely based on the early days of colour t.v/movies with bright saturated colours and high contrast images in all their technicolor glory. All the cushions are made of beautiful wools and wool blends for the front covers, the backing is in a light stone/grey 100% cotton canvas and the inners are 100% duck feather throughout. Liking
