Today I wanted to tell you about Bibi who has designed 20 limited edition cushion for Yoga Will Save the World.
Bibi set up a handmade green cushion company Gabbea driven by passion for creating and her mission to help as much as possible to reduce the impact on the environment.
She uses 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottle felt, known as Eco-fi. It is strong, soft, shrinkage-resistant and colourfast felt fabric.
Below are a couple of images of a little fuchsia yogi man she has appliqued onto one of her cushions. Nipples included. I also stole a quote from her site by Jim Jarmusch.
”Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.”
