How we make our Outdoor Cushions
No ‘production lines’ here! We are proud that all of our outdoor furniture cushions are individually cut and sewn, rather than mass produced.
Cutting & Sewing Outdoor Cushions
We work in well-lit workshop premises equipped with all the necessary tools and machinery we require, all readily on hand. One machine we purposely don’t have is a ‘digital cutting table’ where fabric is cut very quickly by a computer programmed cutting knife.
Instead, because we are not a ‘production line’ type of company, we cut our fabric the old-fashioned way… with a pair of tailor’s shears… and a very trained eye!
By working in this way, any adjustments required due to the shape of the outdoor cushion, or the particular fabric that has been chosen, can be easily taken account of. Every fabric has a slightly different ‘feel’ and needs to be cut accordingly… something that our Sewing Technicians’ many years of experience enables them to ably cope with.
As a Company, over our 30 year history, we've always believed that giving our staff pride in their work is crucial to our success. So, in this age of many things being mass produced on mind-numbing production lines, where each person only carries out one small part of the production process, we like to be different. This means that normally one of our Sewing Technicians will make your entire order, from start to finish. Each order they make is very different… different shapes, different sizes, different fabrics… so this maintains their interest, and gives them an immense sense of pride in their work.
