  • Pink Cushions- The A to Z Initiative

    It has been a while since we spoke about our A to Z initiative. This does not mean we have not been working on it! If you have not heard about it before The A to Z is an Urbanknit initiative which will donate proceeds from sales of bags, totes, cushions, clutches made from upcycled, repurposed, recycled fabrics to assist charities and local schools in Nigeria (which is where the fabric is currently from).  Our own way of making a (creative) contribution. Every product that is part of the initiative will have an orange label to identify it as being that extra special. The full range available can be found with the A to Z Initiative tag.


    Pink Aso Oke Cushions


    We have a set of newly listed Pink Cushions Aso-Oke cushions in our Etsy store which are all part of the initiative. So if you are looking for large, bold, pink cushions then please consider these. Its a win win situation! You can order it with or without the cushion pad.

    1. Pink Zebra Cushion– £15

    2. Pink and Silver Cushion– £15

    3. Pink and Yellow Cushion– £25

    4. Pink and Black Cushion– £15

    As the pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, sales from these pink cushions will go to the Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria.

    Please read more about the A to Z Initiative here.

    As usual, we’d love to hear what you think.



  • Just In: Navy Blue, Turquoise and Beige Aso Oke Cushions

    To add to our growing House and Home section, we have a new set of Aso Oke Cushions. These cushions are in an unusual colour palette of Turquoise, Navy Blue and Beige. A close-up look will reveal that the Aso-oke is the perforated style which adds a beautiful touch of the old to the modern take on the traditional fabric.

    Navy Blue and Turquoise Aso-Oke Cushion- A pair

    Pop one on your favourite arm chair or get a pair or two and inject a new bright colour palette into you living space. These work beautifully in pairs as you can play around with the direction of the stripes on each cushion. The line pattern on each side of the pillow differs. One side is symmetrical and the other side isn’t giving you added versatility.


    Navy Blue and Turquoise Aso-Oke Cushion


     Aso Oke is fairly thick and thus a very durable fabric. Can’t really go wrong! I am not supposed to have favourites but I am afraid I have to confess to absolutely LOVING these. The Aso-oke is a gorgeous texture and the colours work so beautifully together.

  • Just in! Urbanknit Cushions


    Introducing our brand new range of House and Home products.

    There is nothing like snuggling up with some soft cuddly cushions with a good book or whilst watching TV or catching up with friends and family.

    Blue green batik cushion

    Well brand new and in store for you, we have these giant batik and Aso-oke cushions.

    They work beautifully on their own as the fabric used is quite distinct, each cushion also has a piped edge detail. They also work great as pairs.
