One of Kirsty’s most distinctive designs, Globe Cushion marries fun with function. This artful object is inherently comforting, calling to mind childhood and asking to be cradled. Surprisingly heavy (around 750 grams) it resembles an old-fashioned medicine ball and feels dense and reassuring. An engaging addition to couches, bed and daybeds, the globe cushion is one of Klay’s signature items.
Structured and firm, Klay cushions are designed and made with endurance in mind, thanks to Kirsty McLay’s methodical handiwork. Five hand-crafted layers, and unparalleled composition, make Klay cushions resilient and comfortable. The soft, supportive cushion inners are made from repurposed natural-fibre flocking (a blend that is 80 per cent wool) and bamboo batting. Covered in calico, each is hand-trussed, sculpted and steam-moulded into its final shape. Klay cushion outers are made from linen, cotton and velvet. The cushion outer features an invisible colour-matched zip and can be removed and washed — or swapped with another Klay outer for a different look.

*Please note that the cotton range is locally overdyed and handwoven, so part of their character is that they may have weaving flaws or streaks from the hand made processes — which is part of what makes this textile so special.
