The decorative needlework that embellishes many of the most beautiful accent cushions is often created by cross-stitch or crewelwork that is stitched entirely by hand. Crewelwork and embroidery are considered among the most challenging and time-consuming of all the needle arts, the result of which is detail that can approximate a fine, painted canvas. Common materials for embroidery and crewelwork are silk, wool, and cotton.
Throw cushions in the Aubusson style are named after an area in France that has been famous since the Renaissance period for its weavers and the woolen products they produced. Pillows made in the same tradition of highly intricate detailing using top quality yarns are still called Aubusson pillows today. Aubusson pillows are generally used in more formal settings due to their floral, regal, and antique French historical designs. Despite being entirely handmade, decorative pillows are also remarkably durable. In fact, there are countless examples of pillows from the 18th and 19th centuries -- Aubusson, needlepoint, embroidered, and more -- still being used today. Proper storage and gentle spot-cleaning techniques will keep these home accessories looking new for years to come.
