Maggie Check Square Cushion

Hollie Ward

Created exclusively for The New Craftsmen, Maggie Check Square Cushion by Hollie Ward fuses modern aesthetics with traditional craftsmanship. Block indigo and fringed tartan give this decorative cushion a punkish edge.

Inspired by her exploration of sustainable materials and sense of place, Hollie created this collection with a particular focus on longevity, in the hope these pieces will be passed down through generations to be repaired, cherished and loved. The playful fabric and signature fringed seams were created using Shetland wool and surplus stock cotton.

Material: 25% shetland wool, 50% surplus stock ecru cotton, 25% surplus stock indigo dyed cotton
cm: Width 15cm, Depth 45cm, Height 45cm
inches: Width 5.9in, Depth 17.7in, Height 17.7in
Care Instructions: Spot clean with a damp cloth.


From start to finish, Hollie produces no waste and uses no electricity. Using British wool – reared and spun in Shetland – the fabric is expertly woven on an eight-shaft jack loom. Finally, each piece is sewn together by hand using leftover yarns from the warp to ensure nothing is wasted.
