Greenwich design studio makes cushions for pope

An Interior design studio in Greenwich was tasked with making custom chair cushions for Pope Francis that he'll use during his upcoming visit to the United States.



Tiger Lily's on Prospect Street made the cushions that the pope will use when he hosts a Mass at Madison Square Garden next month.



A couple weeks ago, the store was approached with the project.



The store's owner says the cushions were made completely in the U.S. with 100 percent cotton.



Every meticulous detail is crafted by a group of workers who say the project is a blessing that is strengthening their faith.
