Ink & Spin­dle ‘Kook­aburra Bracken’ cush­ion

Inside Out (Australia) - - Things We Love -

DE­SIGN­ERS: Lara Cameron & Caitlin Klooger In­spired by a love of na­tive flora and fauna, Lara and Caitlin have been hand-print­ing fab­ric for nine years from their stu­dio in Kens­ing­ton, Mel­bourne. Lara’s back­ground in graphic de­sign saw her crave a hands-on ap­proach to pro­duc­tion, while Caitlin has pre­vi­ously worked in in­te­rior de­sign and land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture. “All our cush­ions are made from our hand-printed fab­ric,” says Lara. “We source sus­tain­able, low-im­pact base cloths and print our de­signs with wa­ter-based, sol­vent-free inks.” This re­versible cush­ion fea­tures two de­signs – the kook­aburra was in­spired by a pair of “rau­cous fel­lows” that vis­ited Caitlin dur­ing a week­end away, while Lara took her cue for the bracken from a bush­walk in the Ot­way Ranges in Vic­to­ria. Their 10-me­tre print­ing table means each length re­quires two hands on deck for print­ing, says Lara. “Our screens are taller than we are!” $112, inkand­spin­dle.com.
