I’m Ross Bester and I am the owner of Freemen’s Cushions.
Freemen’s Cushions was started in January 2019 as a little side hobby, along side my full time job at the time. I was in foster care most of my life and was always faced daily with people telling me that i would never achieve and wouldn't go far in life, so what did i do? Proved them wrong of course! I graduated university with a 1st class degree in Fashion Design in 2018. I have been hands on and creative my whole life, so I knew that being practical came natural to me.
My journey was set to be a fashion designer but I quickly found a love for interior design once I started my home account - Freemensmeadow26 - it opened my eyes up to soft furnishings and how much they make a home, with my sewing skills, i made some cushions for my home because i couldn't find any that i liked and posted it on social media.. someone liked them and asked if they could purchased which BLEW my mind! Freemens Cushions was born...
Since the business started, I have had some fantastic opportunities to work with celebrities, influencers and interior designers to build my portfolio up, and most importantly, my loyal customers who appreciate and support my brand and journey.
I pride myself in providing affordable luxury cushions and home decor to suit all styles of home interior and I am always open to new ideas and projects. I now have a strong team of 3 workers for the business who are extremely experienced and knowledgeable about the industry, an amazing studio space where I can be creative and produce your products.
I have been able to hire the most amazing team of skilled and talented individuals to help me with the creating and running of the business, and this wouldn't be possible without you supporting me and the business.
Thank you for supporting my dream and coming on this crazy cushion journey with me!
All the best
