In an interview with tjil, Josefina Oskar from Jossy's Pillows shared that the inspiration for the designs is drawn from her home economics lessons back in high school. “We were taught to sew and knit with various fabrics and properly coordinate colours. I then decided to apply these skills to create various designed cushions,” said Oskar.
When asked what type of fabric is used to make these cushions, Oskar disclosed that at the moment she uses leather, fur and lace. She added that she recently started making use of denim and hand-knitted fabric. “Some cushions have a mixture of different fabrics,” she said.
The materials are sourced from various textile shops. She mentioned that she spends most of her time searching for good quality fabric, and stylish and classic designs to accommodate to various living spaces.
She has a range of different designs for clients to choose from, however clients can also decide the design and shape they wish to purchase.
“The designs are drawn from the client's styles and needs. That's why we encourage clients to send us their preferred designs which are not indicated in our catalogue or not available in shops.
“They are not limited to only one size but various shapes and sizes as well and are assigned native names such as Ndapewa, Tjino, Oshoveli,” shared Oskar.
