There is something timeless about the patterns, shapes and colours from the works of William Morris. We reached back into our archives and found beauty in a sage olive green tulip print that was transformed into a lumbar pillow. Complimenting the earth tone sage greens was a caramel sand coloured pattern that spoke of symmetry and ornamentation.
Azalea blossoms from the genus Rhododendrun are vibrant in the spring. One particular artist who captures the beauty and vibrance of Azaleas was Leon Wyczolkowsky. Born in Huta Miastowska near Garwolin, Wyczolkowski began his artistic career in the genre of historical painting, adopting realism in portraits. After a visit to Paris, he changed his focus and painted dramatic landscapes, nudes and pastoral scenes in impressionist strokes that reflected a balance of light and abstraction.

These pillows are uniquely hand made one at a time using natural indigo dyes in a century old technique called Itajime Shibori. The process is a shaped-resist technique. Traditionally, the cloth is sandwiched between two pieces of wood, which are held in place with string. The shapes prevent the dye from penetrating the fabric they cover. Each pillow is made with soft laundered cotton. Covers have an invisible zipper at the bottom and contain a down and feather insert for cushion.
This exclusive collection of pillows supports indigenous artisans in fair trade cooperatives in Indonesia from our partners at The Language of Cloth.
