Who made the City Cushion

Mancitygifts’ very own The Ginger Wig (a City season ticket holder for over 20 years) together with Manchester based artist Dave Draws, collaborated on the design, before the material was printed by a Manchester based firm.

The cushion was then expertly handmade by Loose Button Upholstery in their Manchester studio.

This is a true Made in Manchester cushion to celebrate the history of Manchester’s only team!

How the City Cushion was made

The latest digital printing technology was used to apply the design onto a crisp white 100% cotton twill. Each is feather filled and has a concealed zip, backed in a soft touch charcoal fabric. All cushions are handmade using an iconic Brother sewing machine in Manchester.
