The Canny Colloquial Cushion is hand made in the North East of England and is inspired by the dialect of the North East. The hessian outer is printed in black with the dictionary style definition of the North East word Canny. Made by design company Samphire Bay

The Canny cushion reads:

adjective; pleasant, something nice or good. – “What a canny lass”; careful – “Gan canny bonny lad”; very much – “That’s a canny big stottie”. [Northern]

Each cushion has a nautical dark blue ticking material, with an envelope back.

The cushion is 16 inch x 16 inch and is overfilled with duck feathers ensuring it retains a plump feel.
