VW Flag Cushion


Of Vivienne Westwood’s early designs for The Rug Company, none packs a punch like the iconic, ineffably British “VW Flag”.

While the original flag, a raggedy worn-out Union Jack, was provocatively modeled as a bridal stole in the Autumn/Winter 2002-03 ‘Anglophilia’ catwalk show, the resultant rug and cushion – with its Aubusson finish like faded old velvet and blurred, gently bleeding colour scheme perfectly captures the spirit of the original piece of textile.

An iconic image made to look classical and chic for any home.
