Material

This pillow case was created from two handwoven pieces - one narrow long one and one circular one - as well as a combination of different recycled fabrics and a secondhand zipper. The yarn used in the woven sections is partly secondhand and partly harvested from two different old scarves. The blush pink linen fabric of the outer used to be a set of curtains. The other fabrics used around the zipper closure and as a reinforcement for the thin linen are sourced from the secondhand store.

Inner Pillow

This cylindrical pillow comes a simple fitting insert, made with some excess 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 sturdy structure of the 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.

Technique

The narrow woven section was made using a simple frame loom, which was warped with two different color yarns. This dual-tone warp creates a striped effect in the background. By alternating the burgundy, super chunky yarn with a variety of thinner yarns, an overall grid structure to the piece is created. The circular woven section was made with an embroidery hoop as a frame, warping the threads crossing through the middle and then weaving in a continuos spiral. The blush linen outer was reinforced with a sturdy white canvas backing, by quilting a few lines across the two fabrics. The rest of the pillow was assembled with a hidden zipper under the scallopped edge of the main woven piece.

Styling

This log-shaped pillow is a perfect little arm rest for your sofa, a nice accent cusion or a great neck pillow. The cylindrical shape makes for a different touch to the otherwise very square or flat world of pillows. The red/blush color works great with neutrals or a bright cobalt blue, like our Stacks pillow.

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.
