A cushion with a textile edging either added or stitched within the finished piece.
* The simplest borders are automatically formed when a line of stitching is made within and parallel to the outside edges of a plain cushion cover.
* More complex borders are created by folding extra fabric under along each side, mitred at the corners and stitched within the cushion cover to hold the turned-under fabric in place, simultaneously creating a border–this is an Oxford cushion
* The most complex borders are created when another fabric is added to every side. Front and back are stitched together, turned, and then stitched together again along the seam line of the different fabrics–leaving no room for even a millimetre of error.
