Blue Thread Lug Square Cushion is a hand-block printed linen cushion in grey, with an indigo blue linen reverse, by London-based textile artist Louisa Loakes. Block-printing involves carving a design into a block of wood or linoleum. Dye is then applied to the surface of the block before being pressed into the fabric. This process is then repeated to create a pattern.

Linen fabric is the canvas of Louisa’s work, with each block print twisting and turning to make simple geometric patterns, finished with hand-painted details. There is a freedom and simplicity to her work. Each run of fabric is unique.
