This pillow case was created from a roughly woven burgundy base fabric, a variety of yarns and a light grey fabric for the back. The base, back and lining fabrics were sourced from a secondhand store, so were the majority of the yarns, including the 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 fluffy and sturdy 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 carpet-like texture on the front of the pillow was created with a punch needle. The two different textures can be achieved by working from both sides of the fabric. The flat, embroidery-like texture is created on the working side of the fabric, while the tiny loops are created on the back side. Each stitch creates one loop, so a pillow case like this is made up of thousands of repetitive actions. The back of the pillow features a simple envelope closure, which avoids any additional hardware to keep the inner pillow in place.
This flowy pillow case is a perfect accent for your sofa or bed. The color scheme opens up a lot of possibilities for combinations with other pillows, such as our Green grid or Sea urchin pillows. The texture is soft and fluffy and the pillow can also stand alone as a decorative item on an armchair or lounge chair.
