Material

These pillow cases were created from fabric leftovers from our Cubes Quilt. The fabric itself is a mix of secondhand fabrics, old pants and an old table cloth. The batting for the quilted pillows is made from a few layers of an old bedsheet. The sewing thread used to make the line pattern is sourced secondhand as well from the local recycling center.

Inner Pillow

In case you order your pillow case including the inner pillow, you will receive a simple fitting insert, made with some thin weight fabric and stuffed with a variety of yarn and fabric scraps. This is one of the main ways how we keep our textile production completely zero waste.

While the texture is not as fluffy and even as a polyfil-pillow, the srap pillow is just as soft and works really well with the thicker quilted front side of this pillow. If you were to re-use your scrap pillow in another pillow case in the future, please be aware that the texture of it might poke through if the pillow case is too thin.

Technique

The front panel of these pillows is pieced together from different fabrics, cut to shape so that a 3D cube pattern forms. After piecing those together, the patchwork is layerd with batting and a backing piece and then quilted. The sewn lines give a nice subtle variation to the surface of the pillow and at the same time, make it soft and sturdy. There are two variations available. One has a grid patttern quilted on top of the 3D-cubes, the other one has a simple vertical line pattern. As illustrated in the photos, the rectangular pillows can be stuffed tightly to form a nice arm pillow, or more loosely to keep a flatter and softer shape.

Styling

These pillows are a perfect companion to the Cubes Quilt to make a perfect set of bedding. But also on their own, they are a nice decorative accent to your sofa, armchair or bed. The geometric pattern of the patchwork and it's bright colors make a great center piece or statement in combination with more neutral or mono coloured pillows.

Care instructions

All of our items are handmade from various materials and therefore sensitive to harsh washing and cleaning. Please wash all our products by hand in cold water with natural soap. Do not tumble dry or use bleach on any of them. If you feel the need to iron any of your items, use a low temperature and test carefully on one corner before going over the whole item.

Detailed care instructions will be included with your product. In general: Please treat (all) your belongings with as much love and care as they were treated with during their creation.

End-of-life returns

We will always accept your Wasteless Wonders products back at the end of their life, so that we can recycle them in-house and use the materials once more for new products. If items are in a bad condition, they can always become fluffy pillow stuffing as a last resort, so don't hesitate to send anything back. We are striving to operate as circular and as zero waste as possible, that's why we care what happens to our products across their whole life cycle, until the very end.

As a little thank you for your efforts, for every returned item, you'll receive a 10%-off cupon for your next order to make up for some of the shipping costs associated with your return.
