'My design originated from the evocative signs I saw at the London Black Lives Matter marches in June 2020. I chose bold colours to reflect the power and beauty of diversity as well as the strength which the BLM movement holds. It was important to me that this socially conscious design captures the potential for future equality. I thoroughly enjoyed bringing all these elements together and hope that with the production of this cushion we can raise awareness and funds for the Black Lives Matter cause.'

The Project; Let’s Keep the Conversation Going
This is an anti-racism project, where artists sent in artwork to be made into a cushion which channelled anti-racism messaging, through art. It was ran as a competition in hope to raise funds for anti-racism charities, and charities supporting Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups of people. We have done this project to try to keep the conversation going, there is so much systemic change that needs to happen; we need to keep questioning, keep learning and keep fighting for equality.

What do we love about it?
Who made this?
This cushion is made by a talented machine embroidery technician in Moradabad, using 100% plastic free threads, base fabrics and zips. The factory in which they are made provides reliable employment and opportunities for their employees and their families. We have worked with the factory for about 20 years and know the owners of this fantastic small business, and their employees well.
