About

Gaynor Trophies - Handmade Homewares

Vic is a designer / maker, and the one woman band behind Gaynor Trophies. Originally from Manchester (arguably the greatest city in the world), she now lives in Hackney, London (just as creative, less rain).

Having been inspired by the vibrant Dutch wax prints available in the local markets, and with a vague recollection of school sewing lessons, she set about creating a collection of graphic homewares using premium fabrics.

All Gaynor Trophies goods are proudly handmade, and focus on striking vibrant colourways and dynamic graphic patterns that are not trend driven. They are made solely for those who don't f*ck about when it comes to colour.

Whats in a name? Gaynor Trophies was also the name of the family business founded by Vic's grandad. With courage, tenacity, hard work and a good deal of entrepreneurial / Del Boy spirit, he left his job and set-up a workshop (no 'prizes' for guessing his product!)

Frequently asked questions
Tell me about the feathers in the cushion pads.

All of our cushion pads are UK made from a UK supplier, and contain duck feathers that are Downpass certified. Downpass is a globally recognised certification and ensures that all feathers are "ethically harvested and come from a strictly controlled and traceable supply chain". Further information can be found at www.downpass.com.

Before use, the feathers are cleaned in a high pressure and very high temperature chamber. This is followed by dust removal testing for organic cleanliness. The casings are twin stitched, anti-dust mite 100% cotton,and are fully machine washable.

I am actively looking for cushion fillings which provide the same level of plump luxury, but are 100% vegan. If you have any suggestions please hit me up!
