Materials

The various yarns used to make this pillow case were all sourced from a local recycling center. Between de four colours used, there is some wool, some cotton and some most likely acrylic yarn, all of similar weight. In addition to the handwoven fabric, some sturdy canvas - also sourced from the local recycling center - makes up the back of the pillow, which is constructed envelope-style and makes a zipper unneccesary.

Inner Pillow

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.

Technique

This little pillow case was handwoven on a simple frame loom. The striped patterns on the pillow were created by weaving alternate rows in different, interlocking patterns, which are offset to create the diagonals or simply repeated for the verticals. The solid shapes were woven in the same manner, running the yarn for the full length of each row, behind the pattern and therefore avoiding any holes in the woven fabric and making it extra sturdy. The back of the pillow, a simple envelope closure, was added on with a sewing machine.

Styling

This pillow case is a great fit for your living room or bedroom. It is small enough to fit not only on the sofa or bed, but also on a variety of armchairs or lounge chairs. It can be a great accent in combination with some plain colored pillows of the same color scheme or some other simple textured pillows, like our stacks pillow.
