This has been used every day since it arrived. It is beautifully made - the fabric is a lovely linen with a delicate pattern. It has a rose gold zip and is finished off with a dark pink tassel. I use it for my daily makeup and it fits a huge amount as although it looks compact it’s cavernous. Whoever made it the finish was excellent. Well done.
The recipients were thrilled with their special cushion to mark their wedding day. Beautifully executed and such a worthwhile charity to support.
Thus cushion went to the states where it has been a great success.
I love this item, not only is it very useful and just the right size for my glasses, but it is also a joy to look at! The workmanship is first class and the colours bright and quirky- congratulations to the skilled needle pointer who created this; I am so pleased it fulfils a purpose for both of us. I have now bought little purse form Fine Cell Work and it is just the ticket! Thank you!
If you’re looking to buy this cushion, and they are available, don’t give it a moments thought, press the button, they are absolutely exquisite.
I am delighted with my beautiful cushion, which has been much admired by my family and friends. I am now using it inside on my favorite pink reclining chair. A big thank you to Melissa Wyndham and the prisoners who made it.
Excellent work well done.
I love this cusion. It's got top spot on my mountain of prized cusions. Thank you
Very good Quality and beautifully made. It is my third order and I am very impressed with the cushions on offer.
The customer service team were really helpful when I asked them about the designs on the website. The delivery was so fast and efficient. This is my second time having bought from Fine Cell Work for gifts for family. They have all written back to the individual who have made their gifts thanking them. The craftmanship is of such high standard. Thank you very much!
I love it. Second one like this I have bought.
As always very efficient service and the most beautiful cushions arrived, they look wonderful, thank you
Loving it so far :)
My T.towels arrived quickly and were well wrapped. I was very happy with them, the quality of the material is very good and the printing is excellant. I have framed one of them and it looks amazing.
The delivery was prompt, carefully packaged... and then the reveal! I’m absolutely thrilled with the pair of cushions. The design is simple and striking and the stitching is of the best quality. The cushions have a lovely ‘ploof’ feel to them too. Beautiful products with ethical standards.
