Cactus Mexicanos Cushion in Papaya
This design is the culmination of several years Dr Susy Paisley spent living in, and besotted with, Mexico. It celebrates the incredible diversity of Mexican cacti. Mexico is one of the world’s centre of endemism for this group of plants, and includes marvels like the Creeping Devil, a cactus in this design which actually moves across the desert floor! Cacti are enjoying a new popularity, but globally, one out of three cacti is in need of conservation attention. The design includes the Chisos Mountain hedgehog cactus, hallucinogenic Peyote, a critically endangered dragonfruit, which forms the long tendrils in the design, and lesser long-nosed bat (an essential pollinator for cacti) and the iconic saguaro and crested saguaro cacti.
Carolina Monarch Cushion in Prunus
Carolina monarchs tell of the monarch butterfly and milkweed, its larval foodplant. It also has echinacea, both the common coneflower, Echinacea purpurea, and Echinacea laevigata, and endangered coneflower limited to a few sites in and around the Carolinas. Double-sided with a hidden zip.
Carolina Posies Cushion in Cornbread
Carolina Posies is a lush, hand-drawn design which celebrates wild species of the Southern States of the Carolinas. The designer is a conservation biologist who grew up in this beautiful area. The rich colors and graphic details are matched by the interest of the many extraordinary species depicted, including monarch butterflies and their larval food-plants, milkweed, Carolina Reaper chilli peppers, devil’s paintbrush, pine barren gentian, grass of Parnassus and carnivorous plants. Carolina Posies is a detailed botanical with an enchanting meandering feel, part of a growing passion in interiors for honouring the natural world. Double-sided with a hidden zip.

The bees are foraging on clover, and pheasant’s eye, a rare wildflower introduced to the UK in Roman times.
