Be Still soft furnishings

Handmade cushions by Sarah Robinson - aka Be Still

You may have noticed my newest advertiser over there in the ad column... Be Still is the Etsy shop of Australian-born, Bangkok-based Sarah Robinson. Sarah is, by her own admission, an industrial designer gone soft. (Soft furnishings, that is!)

Sarah is mum to a 2 year old, and her favourite past time since moving to Thailand is to trawl through the enormous fabric warehouses in Bangkok. As well as browsing all the stunning Thai fabrics on offer, Sarah has discovered many well-known international designer brands such as Zoffany, GP&J Baker and Lee Jofa textiles. ALL these fabric houses are incredible and each link is definitely worth visiting separately I promise!

Sarah currently makes exquisite hand-made cushions and napkins using the beautiful fabrics she finds - a range which has so far developed quite organically with no planning until now! In the coming months she hopes to develop other soft furnishings which co-ordinate with the existing range. I love that Ikat cushion (below right)! Gorgeous gorgeous.

In addition to the Be Still Etsy store, you can also find some of Sarah's handmade products at Mac Pelican in Hawthorn. Thanks so much to Sarah for her support... (My first Etsy advertiser!). Please share the love and pop over to check out her lovely range!
