Over time, their colors have faded from being exposed to the sun, constant use, and from many washings.
The result is the latest series of pillow covers in the Origami Collection at Poetic Pillow.
While they are beautiful as coasters, I wanted to preserve the images. I took each coaster, scanned them on my flatbed scanner, and produced raw digital files of the textile prints. The images were great, but they were the original coasters that I remember during my trip to Japan. I proceeded to adjust the images manually using software applications to refine the exposure, bring out colors for more vibrancy, and position the patterns more symmetrically.
Poetic Pillow is a platform for creating meaningful space.
A room, a home, an office, a garden, any space that we inhabit can be made special by pillows. Decorative throws, pillow covers, and cushions, in all its possibilities can transform a space from ordinary to meaningful.
