How it works


About Us

Cushy Paws was born out of the creative mayhem of our family home.

The love for our chaotic and adorable family pets and love of crafts and creativity that runs through the family culminated in these handmade, unique, customised cushions of pet portraits, and as with so many ‘kitchen table’ ideas, the cushions were a big hit with our family and friends and then the word quickly spreading. Each cushion is created by replicating the portraits of your pet’s photograph with a patchwork applique technique using various different woven and printed fabrics on a variety of coloured and textured backgrounds, and finished with an eye-catching coloured zip to match the patchwork portrait.

Award winning designer Grace Hancock the owner of Cushy Paws, graduated in 2016 with a First Class Honours degree in Textiles and Innovation Design at Loughborough University. Grace was selected to exhibit at New Designers and won the New Designers Romo award for Innovation in design and colour 2016, she is now pursuing her dream running her own business as head designer and artist.

Recently, Grace has taken her work in a different direction by exploring different animals within her patchwork portrait designs. All created using the same technique, she has explored different colour combinations and animal portraits resulting in one off, bespoke artwork.

Each patchwork portrait will have a variety of different materials and colours, often reflecting the tones of your pet(s) as well as other colours to compliment and brighten the look and feel of the design.

The unique style and technique that makes cushy paws stand out.
