About

This pillow's creator starts from a place of traditional patterning. The artisan selects fine examples of Asian textiles to attach to linen backs and create down-filled works of art. By rearranging and rest itching this traditional Indian textile, the artist creates a new relationship in the featured patterns. Vibrant reds and blues give the pillow character, offering a subtly present accent for the home.
