Find the right size
Thinking about a cushion for the whole family inevitably means asking the question of size! It should neither be too small to suit adults, nor too large to suit children... The objective being to create a small nomadic companion, ideal for moments of rest on a bed or sofa , as for playtime. . We also wanted its dimensions to be compatible with our BABA Armchairs and Sofas , thus making it possible to accessorize the backrests or armrests for even more comfort. After many sketches and just as many prototypes, we arrived at the ideal dimensions that perfectly meet all these criteria: 30 x 40 cm !
Choose the right closure for a removable cushion
There are different ways to design the closure of a removable cushion. Always for the sake of safety for our toddlers , we have chosen a so-called wallet closure , pillowcase style, without buttons or zippers likely to injure.
Look for a quality trim
It was important to us that our cushions are as beautiful inside as outside ! Our research paid off, and our wish came true thanks to a French company , located in the northeast of France, specializing in the manufacture of cushions and pillows, renowned for its know-how .
Under the GASTON envelope, you will therefore find the best of fillings : a cushion in cotton canvas , certified Oeko-Tex® Standard and filled with a soft fiber treated with triple hygiene actions (anti dust mites-fungal-mold) intended for children and babies. The little extra? This cushion pad is easily machine washable and clump-free !
An ever-increasing approach
The making of our GASTON cushions reinforces our logic of responsible production since the covers, whether in washed linen or cotton fur , come directly from scraps of fabric used for the manufacture of our range of BABA seats.
The choice of materials
Like our entire range of BABA seats and our GEORGES Plaids, the GASTON cushion is available in our five colors of pure washed linen 270 g/m2. This one is grown, spun, woven and ennobled in Europe , in compliance with social and environmental standards , and certified Oeko-Tex® Standard 100. Ecological fiber and respectful of the environment in essence, the cultivation of flax does not require fertilizers or pesticides, and rainwater is sufficient for its development. Naturally hypoallergenic , antibacterial and thermoregulatory , linen is truly our “favourite” material!
And because you love our cotton fur just as much, GASTON is also available in this very soft version! This one is in undyed natural organic cotton 360 g/m2, made in Europe and certified Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 & GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
A GASTON cushion requires many manufacturing steps ! As for the washed linen or cotton fur cover, we entrust this mission to the expert hands of experienced seamstresses who coordinate all the steps necessary for the manufacture of each: patterning , cutting , assembly , overcasting and sewing !
And finally, the crash test!
Know that our GASTON Cushions have been approved after a great family battle!
