The front piece of this pillow was woven with dark green wool and turquoise cotton secondhand yarn on a white cotton warp that came with the secondhand loom it was woven on. The back side of the pillow is made from some dark green secondhand fabric and everything is sewn together with some secondhand sewing thread.
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.
The grid-like pattern on the woven part of the pillows is achieved by alternating the bulkier dark green with the very thin turquoise yarn in a simple over-under pattern. The back of the pillow features a simple envelope closure, which means that no zippers or other hardware are necessary to close the pillow.
This extra large pillow is perfect as a center piece on your bed or sofa. Because of it's minimalistic pattern and simple color, it can be combined with a variety of other smaller pillows to make a nice arrangement. It also works really well as a floor cushion and is perfect for those occasions when you may need some additional seats around your sofa or side table.
