Three-Dimensional Textiles

It's not often that one looks at a cushion and ponders its three-dimensional nature. That is, until you've had the Oromono "experience." Oromono is the innovative textile design company founded by British designer extraordinaire, Kirsty Anne Powell. With each piece Kirsty designs, she magically weaves fabric into what can only be considered a sculptural form. Her cushions will make you want to touch, pet and examine each and every one of them. And it's no wonder - they're vibrant, they have depth, and they're beautiful! What's also nice about Kirsty is that she is environmentally conscious as well. Recently, she designed a new eco-friendly home collection called PAPER, which is made from an innovative new fabric constructed with paper. It's a strong washable material derived from sustainable resources that can be recycled. Go Kirsty! If you're so inclined, take a look at the Oromono website for more of Kirsty's home products, as well as her lovely slippers, throws, stockings and bags. There's no doubt in my mind that you'll be seeing lots more of this fabulous designer in the near future.
