My name is Abi and I am the designer/maker of all the products at Fox Murray Home. Each cushion is handmade at my kitchen table using skills I learned as a child and have re-taught myself in later years.
In my career as a buyer for interior designers, I found that more and more cheap, printed cushions referenced patchwork and applique techniques that previously took time and love (and sometimes a whole community) to make. I noticed that these patterns and styles were now manufactured in plastic-based fabrics and it made me sad that the heritage of these techniques were being lost to machines.
I therefore set about designing and making a range of cushions that are handcrafted authentically using the techniques of patchworking and applique, and reference traditional values whilst working perfectly in the contemporary home. The beauty of working with patchwork and applique is that every piece of fabric in each design is considered and cut individually and pieced to the next to create something unique and wonderful. Any small pieces left over from a design can also be used in the next. Although it takes time to work in this way, I believe it adds integrity to the story of the piece. Every cushion has been made with passion for the artistry involved and each will be ever so slightly different to the last.
All of my cushions are handmade in natural fabrics, such as 100% wools, and cotton/ linens. These fabrics are not only beautiful, strong and luxurious to the touch, but are also bio-degradable once their use comes to an end.
I love to work on bespoke and custom pieces and if you don't quite find what you're looking for, please contact me and I would love to work with you on creating something bespoke for your home, that is truly yours alone.
Thank you ,
Abigail Fox Murray
