Stitched for protection

One of the new cushion designs for Absolutely Fabulous that I haven’t had a chance to feature here until now is this lovely Japanese geometric one in navy with bright red piping. It’s based on one of the most popular traditional patterns used on kimono, the asanoha or overlapping hemp leaves. In kimono, this design is thought to bring good fortune to the wearer, and is commonly used for children’s clothes because hemp is known for its rapid growth, vigour and resilience.

I think this one’s my new favourite and I might need a pair for myself!
