About

Cushions created in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, hurrah for hand made in Britain!

Helen joined Etsy in july 2009. Diagnosed 10 years before with Multiple Sclerosis Etsy gave her the choice to be able to work for herself around her illness and disability. The first cushion sold to Australia and the rest is history.
Printing and producing in the background to make it all work - James my husband
The ethos of Helkatdesign is to create cushions and prints that are not mass produced, nor have a label saying ‘Made In China’ on the back. Helen and James believe that the origin of the products that we buy in Britain is incredibly important." We source all of our materials in Britain, if not locally. Helkatdesign is truly a British kitchen table business. We print and sew the entire range from the attic space in our Wiltshire home, a converted Edwardian hospital and ship the final products all over the world."
Helkatdesign produces soft furnishings- cushions, bolsters excluders handprinted canvases; using natural, quality materials and fabrics. Inspired by the countryside great British symbols and icons, heraldic images, international flags, with a feel of New England style and Scandinavian textiles.
"What makes us different? the back of our cushions have as much work and detail as on the front and we like to think that this makes our cushions unique. We were bored of turning cushions over only to find a plain back so instead with helkatdesign cushions, whichever way you throw them on the sofa, they will still look splendid."

Helen's Husband
This information is very difficult to write. For the friends and customers that had the privilege to know Helen. Sadly Helen had been very ill from November 2014 with a cancerous brain tumour. Sadly Helen's brave fight and exceptional carriage unfortunately wasn't enough. Helen lost her fight and sadly passed away on the 1st of April 2015.
HELKATDESIGN will live on in my wife's name.
