Cushion Cover - Kirra the Echidna
Kirra the Echidna features the beautiful bold artwork of Melbourne based artist Lucinda Brash, using ink and water-colour. Check-out those multi-coloured spines and long snout with tongue for slurping up those yummy ants, worms and insect larvae.
Fun facts: Did you know that Kirra's spines are actually long, tough and hollow hair follicles?! Did you also note Kirra's hind claws and limbs? Yes, they are facing backwards to help them dig. How's that for nature's wonderful protective strategy to help echidnas dig their way out of trouble?!
Saddened by Australia's devastating bushfires and heartened by people and communities pulling together, Lucinda's collection of art features animals and birds who have been directly impacted and whose habitat has been destroyed in many regions. We're donating a percentage of our sales to wildlife protection and recovery programs.
Digitally printed on 100% cotton, measuring 41cm x 41cm with a zip for easy inserting and removal of the cushion insert (the cushion insert is not included). The backing is made from sustainable and organic fibres comprising hemp 55% and organic cotton 45%. Pick and choose your backing colour from light-toned neutral, cobblestone that goes perfectly with almost any colour, or a deeper charcoal to match Kala's colourings.
We partner with wonderful Melbourne artisans to create our products. Printing has been done by the team at Next State who are accredited by the Ethical Council of Australia and use a water based pigment ink that is Oeko-Tex approved.
