Bespoke Embroidered Pillow

Hmm? Did I hear you say you have way too much money? Might I recommend a bespoke embroidered pillow perhaps? It takes 4-6 weeks for delivery, so unfortunately it won’t work for this year’s Mother’s Day, but you can always keep in mind for next year.

A wonderful personalized gift to admire and remember. Send us your child’s drawing and we will embroider an exact replica of it on a 100% white cotton pillow case. White. Measures 12″ X 16″. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Measures 12″ X 16″

Felted Wool Stones by Ronel Jordaan

These stones by Ronel Jordaan seem to be quite a bit larger than the Felt Rocks by Molo, and they would be excellent cushions to add here and there around a living space. (I’ve listed links for two different retailers; whoever had the lower price got the link for that particular item.)

Socially conscious as well as gifted, Jordaan has set up a women’s workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg-where her personally trained artisans transform interlocking fibers, made from 100% merino wool, into these freeform oversized “stone” floor cushions…Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back. Hand washable in cold water.

Fair & Square Pillow

I heart this embroidered pillow- for the script on front, yes, and also for the embroidery on the back (click on link to see detail).

Our over-sized Fair & Square pillow is an embroidered cushion in Chinese hemp. The cushion’s deco-design was developed by FairTrade Designers with inspiration from traditional ethnic chinese embroidery and Danish embroidered tradition with the ‘Home Sweet Home’ cushion, which carries a message that signals personal values.

Available in collegiate lettering or script.
The back side of each pillow is brightly embroidered with the name & hand print of the person who made it.
24″ x 24″
