Cushions & Panels
Tex Ex Cushion Panels are the brainchild of Stephen, one of the founders of Textile Express. Stephen has always believed that fabric should be treated as a piece of artwork and wanted to apply this theory to cushions. All of the images on our cushion panels are created either by local artists or in partnership with artists that as a company we truly admire. Our ever growing range started with our British Butterflies range and the beautiful bumblebee which has now become one of our most popular designs and is available on a linen background as well as some gorgeous vibrantly coloured velvets. After hours of painting and lots of discussion the original artwork is reproduced onto textiles using digital printing. All of cushion panel printing is done in the UK and the designs are all exclusive to Textile Express.
All you need to make your cushion is one panel, approximately 50cmx50cm of a backing cloth of your choice and a zip or fastening e.g button, popper or hook and eye; unless you decide to do an envelope back of course, in which case, you only need a panel and backing fabric. If you are not a sewer or just need a cushion quickly perhaps for a present we do sell the cushions as readymade covers and also as complete cushions which can be stuffed with either a fibre or feather pad.
These panels can also be used for a variety of soft furnishings around the home. Going back to Steve’s mantra about using fabric as artwork why not put one in a frame or mount it on a canvas? The panels also make great tote bags or could be incorporated into a quilt. I have even seen them being used to upholster chairs which looked fab and made a real design statement. We are constantly developing and adding new designs to the range and would love to hear your thoughts on images you might like to see added to the collection.
