1. Quilt vs Quilt Cover
Patchwork quilts are made up of three layers..the top labour intensive patchwork layer, the middle batting layer and then the backing. Then it needs to be pinned together so that the three layers can be sewn together.
What makes a quilt special is the extra time that goes into them. If they don't have the internal layer of batting then it would be a blanket.. A quilt is also sometimes referred to as a comforter or bedspread..it is thin and a perfect weight for summer or as an extra layer in winter.
Our patch quilts are made from cotton with a dash of natural linen.
Our Minimalist quilts are made entirely from stonewashed flax linen.
Quilt/doona covers or duvet covers which require an insert to be placed inside of them. They are normally more puffy and thicker depending on the quilt insert you use.
We offer many sizes in pure flax linen quilt covers on a custom order basis. We order monthly and they are made by our linen supplier for us. Wait times can be up to 5 weeks but this allows us to offer you such an array of colour and sizes that as a tiny business we wouldn't otherwise be able to offer you.

3. Cushion Inserts
We proudly use and recommend Innergreen cushion inserts and pillows.
They are made in Australia from recycled PET fiber is derived from 100% post consumer water bottles. The fiber looks, feels and performs in the same way as a high-grade poly fiber, but is completely recycled. For every 1kg of fiber used, around 70 water bottles are saved from ending up in landfill. The Recycled PET fiber is also 100% non-allergenic.
You can find inserts to fit our cushions on their site https://www.innergreen.com.au/eco/
