This pillow is woven from a mix of secondhand cotton and acrylic yarns, as well as some extra chunky acrylic roving, that used to be some weird statement scarf. The back of the pillow was made with some sturdy cobalt blue canvas from the local recycling center.
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 thick and sturdy woven fabric of this outer 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.
This pillow was woven on a simple frame loom. The pattern was created by alternating one row of very thin black or colorful yarn with one row of the super chunky light grey yarn. With even weight yarn, this pattern would create vertical stripes, but because of the yarn weight difference, the stripes are off-set and form a visual grid. The back of the pillow is a simple envelope closure. This type of closure does not require any zippers, but still makes it possible to easily change the inner pillow, while it stays safely in place.
This pillow is the perfect accent for your pillow collection on your bed or sofa. The texture is super soft to the touch and incredibly fluffy. It is a small pillow that can shine on its on on an armchair or lounge chair, or can be easily combined due to it's minimalistic pattern. It fits really nicely with our extra large stacks pillow, gradient basket and mountains tapestry.
