Camp Cushion ‘ Water ‘ Upcycled Sit Pad ‘ Zero Waste Dog Bed ‘ Made in USA
The Moonrise Project puts the sustainability message of Diamond Brand Gear into action. The fabric for our American Boro and Rescue series was originally destined for the landfill before we found it and re-purposed it into something new and beautiful!
We recently worked on a project with a well known sock manufacturer, a project that involved collecting them used wool socks, cleaning them, and having them ground into fill. We’ve taken what was left after the project and made these comfy camp cushions for your backyard and car camping adventures.
Each cushion features our “American boro” patchwork top, water-resistant aircraft cover sides, and a highly water-resistant vinyl bottom. As ever, all materials are upcycled scrap left over from our regular manufacturing.
The theme for this run of Camp Cushions is the element of water. We’ve grouped our scrap materials together into shades of blues, greens, pale grays, and whites and stitched them together using our “American boro” technique to create an abstract patchwork* that evokes one of the fundamental elements of all life.

In 1881 Diamond Brand Gear first came to the heart of the Smokey Mountains. During this time, sewing and craft were a dominant aspect of daily life in Asheville. We got our start in a small, defunct hosiery mill that quickly turned into a thriving factory. When the textile industry began to offshore their facilities, we made it our mission to revive the art of sewing and keep production in the USA. We are committed to the preservation of craftsmanship, the formation of a greener economy, and the creation of durable goods that enhance the experience of all adventurers. Thus the Moonrise Project was born to help elevate our scraps and help the world through Reclaiming, Reusing, and Recreating.
