SKINKY TORTELLINI CUSHION – LOCAL AND INGENIOUS Written by Suzanne Catchpole 18.12.2008

I’m not sure I need a cushion that lasts years and years, but it would be nice if it lasted longer than four months. My feeding pillow was shelved after this long – it was invaluable for that time, but it would have been nice to continue its life a little longer considering how much it cost.

Here’s a locally produced cushion that will go the distance – the Skinky Tortellini Cushion will see you through breasfeeding then off to the park, where baby can be propped up to see the world. When she’s sitting, do the button up and pop that nappied bottom into the middle of the Tortellini, and she’ll be supported and steady. Undo the button if baby falls unpredictably when learning to sit, and you can relax a little more while she plays on the floor.

What I’d now be using mine for is a laptop cushion. As you can imagine, I spend many hours on my computer, and sometimes my neck and back feel the strain.

Available in ten attractive striped designs, the fabric used is 100% cotton which is handwoven and hand-coloured using non-toxic dyes. The Skinky Tortellini Cushion is $90 plus post, which is a steal considering I paid the same for one I used for just four months! It is designed and made right here in Sydney.
