The Wall 75 Berlin Designer Cushion Cover
A unique piece – the approved prototype of our handcrafted decorative cushion cover "The Wall 75" from the BERLIN Collection.
A removable cushion cover with a refillable insert.
We recommend that you purchase a premium fiberfill (not included) or reuse a fill for instance from a worn-out no zip cushion to reduce landfill waste.
All the money raised from selling the first unique pieces will be invested in making the new cushions of recycled polyester.
