This pillow case was created from cobalt blue fabric, sourced at a craft material swap, an old fleece blanket and a zipper sourced from the local recycling center. Even the thread used to create the lines of the pattern is leftover thread from an upholstery project.
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 pattern on the front side of the pillow is a simple quilt, made with just one layer of fabric on top of a piece of an old fleece blanket. By sewing on the lines of the geometric stacking cube pattern, the pillow has a very subtle quilted texture and a very minimalistic graphic appearance. The closure is a zipper on one of the short sides that allows for a large opening.
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.
