These squishy round pillows are made from 20 - 24 polygonal fabric pieces, arranged in a way to form a circle. The large sea urchin pillow is created from organic cotton velour scraps in burgundy. The small sea urchin pillow is created from a printed pink organic cotton with some mustard and white swirls. Both pillows are stuffed with small fabric scraps, recycled batting and stuffing. The little button details are made with recycled buttons. The organic cotton and velour scraps are pre-consumer production waste from Finnish sustainable fashion brand MORICO.
All our odd-shaped pillows are 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. This unfortunately means that these decorative pillows can't be washed in your regular laundry machine, as the outer shell is not removable. If there is any stains or dirt, use some detergent and carefully wipe down the outer surface to clean it.
The small small sea urchin pillow was assembled from 20 polygonal pieces, while the large one was created with 24 pieces. Each half of the pillow has a bow-like shape before they are assembled together. Each pillow has a layer of recycled batting on the top and bottom inside to give a smooth surface. The rest of the pillows is filled with a large amount of tiny fabric scraps. Finally the button detail is added to each of them, creating a little dip in the center of the pillow and giving it a nice finished shape and look.
The large sea urchin pillow has a diameter of approximately 55 cm and a height of 13,5 cm and is therefore best used as a large floor pillow to lounge on. The small sea urchin pillow has a diameter of 35 cm and a height of 12,5 cm and is ideal as an accent pillow on your sofa or armchair. Both pillow match really well with our starfish, shell and knot pillows to create a cozy ocean themed reading nook.
MORICO is a finnish sustainable brand, creating ethical and slow fashion. This product is created with some of their pre-consumer scraps - cut-offs in the production process of their clothes and accessories. Their high quality organic cottons, viscose and other fabrics are too precious to waste, so we took some of the small and weird pieces and created a small collection of unique Wasteless Wonders products with them.
