Designing with repurposed textiles

Hi, my name is Caroline and thanks for visiting Plump Cushions.


Having my own fashion label led to a tertiary teaching career in Design,

Garment Construction and Patternmaking. Reimagining vintage textiles for today’s responsible living is how I now devote my time.


I truly value the quality of sublime vintage linen,

our divine Aussie wool blankets and exquisitely executed needleworks. Deserving of being rescued from languishing in a linen press, it only requires imagination to reinvent them for today’s sustainable home plus skill for that professional finish.


Never being one for run of the mill, I create quirky pieces with a story, fastidiously made to last.


My motto is ‘Reimagine, Reinvent, Repurpose, Recycle, Reuse - but with style’.
