Studio Five is a small brand based here is Scotland and is designed by sisters Lucy and Kitty.
The girls both graduated in 2016 with degrees in Fashion and Textiles from Heriot Watt University in Galashiels and Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. They both became increasingly concerned about the devastating effects that the fast fashion industry is having on the environment so decided to launch Studio Five, a brand that celebrates "stylish sustainability".
Studio Five's first collection, entitled 'The Calm Before the Storm', features unisex, illustrated tees in organic cotton, organic cotton cushions, hand rolled scarves, recycled paper postcards, badges and sticker packs. Their second collection, which is still in development, was inspired by the mountains and the animals that dwell in them. They have upped their product offering with this collection too by including items such as a new 100% knitted wool range which encompasses scarves, socks and jumpers.
The cushions from the second collection (the first 4 shown) are absolutely fantastic. I could use one of these babies for my desk chair. As a graphic designer the prints really appeal to me.
With prices around £40 for a cushion it won't cost the earth. Literally.
