Firstly, natural materials tend to be much more durable than synthetic options. Wool, cotton, and linen are all hard-wearing materials that can easily withstand years of wear and tear. This makes them an ideal choice for upholstery and other household items.

In addition to their durability, natural materials also offer superior breathability. Wool, for instance, is one of the most breathable fibers available and can help keep your room feeling cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.

Lastly, natural materials tend to look better over time. While synthetic fabrics often fade and start to look worn out, natural materials will usually hold their shape and colour, maintaining their beauty throughout the years. 

The beauty and durability of natural materials make them an excellent choice for handmade cushions. Not only will they brighten up any room, but they will also provide long-lasting comfort and beauty.
