This quilted pillow is made with linen, cotton: all recycled fabrics from other projects made in the atelier. The colors are obtained using natural (plant based) dyes. Some of the fabrics are hand-dyed by me in my atelier, here in Amsterdam. Traditional quilts inspire the design. The filling in the pillow is made out of 100% recycled pet bottles, and itfeatures a blind zipper in polyester (still looking for recycled blind zippers).
The yellow fabrics are colored using the onion peals, collected by me and my mom, who sent a big bag from Sweden to contribute to this project. The yellow shades are dyed in my atelier in Amsterdam.
In this pillow, I have used old linen towels that my grandmother has made. The towels are woven with a striped pattern and each towel has hand embroidered letters as for the signature of my grandfather.
Each pillow is handmade and unique, so no pillow will have the same material or look. As this is product is made of natural fibers and colors the pillow can change color slightly intime. This is normal for this kind of product.
