Her creations took me back a couple of years when frustrated with my local upholsterer (he couldn't even be bothered to send me a quote to upholster a small French chair) I decided to go on an upholstery course.
Whilst on the course a woman popped in to ask the tutor if she would like an old vintage eiderdown that she no longer wanted as she thought the tutor could recycle the feather filling for other projects. My tutor politely declined and later disclosed that old eiderdowns were full of old dead skin cells! from previous owners! I can't tell you how that made me feel!
From that day forth I stopped buying vintage eiderdowns to sell on and have only ever purchased them to salvage the fabric. If you have ever stripped an old eiderdown for the fabric then you will know just how disgusting they can be on the inside!
So if you want to be warm and cosy this winter might I suggest you buy a new eiderdown. Belinda's eiderdowns are very pretty with many designs to choose from and they don't cost the earth!
