Outdoor cushions are a great way to add a splash of colour to your garden furniture as well as being functional by providing great levels of comfort. This spring, we are furnished with these stunning bright red Sloane & Sons outdoor cushions.
Sloane & Sons was founded by Gerry Sloane in 1989, and a local business based in Burton on Trent. They began by manufacturing cushions and soft furnishings and has now been manufacturing and supplying essential products for the home and garden for over 25 years. This was the first time I had heard about them and I’m very pleased to know that they are so local to me. It’s also good to know that they still make and produce all of their outdoor scatter cushions and garden bench cushions here in England.
You’d be forgiven for thinking these cushions that we have received look like any ordinary cushion but they are made with an olefin (oil) based material which is hand woven in Europe before being shipped to them. The material is then cut and sewn in-house before being filled with blown fibre ready to be delivered!
For these 40 cm by 40 cm square outdoor cushions, there are a total of six colours to choose from: red, cream, blue, green, stone and taupe. We have picked the red colour which is very vibrant and stunning! It will definitely complement our green outdoor furniture!
The cushions are fully piped and come with zips enabling you to take off the cover for washing or to replace the blown fibre inner after several years use. The stitching on the cushion is really tight and well finished all around. The cushion cover is also easy to clean by hand washing. Or you can wash it in the washing machine with a cold rinse and short spin as long as you don’t wring it. The cover is showerproof. But I am a clean freak so I won’t leave the cushions outdoors! Overall the outdoor cushions are very well made and durable. The cushions are more than I would normally pay but they are made with good quality materials that should last for a long time.
