Modern Designer Pillows

Montreal 1976 Olympics pillow with Amik mascot, made from authentic souvenir scarves

Special: Olympic Scarf Pillow - Amik, the beaver mascot of the Montreal '76 Olympics. This pillow is made from 2 identical authentic souvenir scarves from the Montreal Olympics.

We are concentrating now on only high end, custom pieces.

While we would love to have been able to continue producing smaller, more affordable pieces, we found that after 2008 that there was no market for good quality, mid-range work. Sadly, perhaps, we now concentrate on high end and larger pieces.

In any case, we believe in buying fewer objects and only buying high quality.

Our prices reflect the excellent quality of our collectible vintage textiles, the labour involved in searching them out and resuscitating them, the fact that our pillows are the same fabric front and back (this is unusual for pillows, which generally use cheap secondary backings), and the high quality and longevity of our craftsmanship, our threads, zippers and filings. All our pillows are made from vintage or salvaged textiles, or occasionally from new organic, sustainably-produced fabrics (organic cotton or bamboo). They are meant to last and become heirlooms.

We use clean feather filling, not foam, unless requested otherwise.

For past pillows, please see our gallery page.

Large modern floor pillows from Indian handwoven textile

Authentic Japanese Indigo Shibori Floor Pillows from rare, collectible Aizenboko indigo.
20% Off Sale - now C$425 each
Edition of 5 unique pillows
SOLD OUT

These are reversible feather-filled floor pillows, all approx 31" x 32".

Shibori is the Japanese technique of tied resist, an old and very sophisticated form of tye dye. These large textile squares were produced at one of the last studios in Japan still doing their own authentic indigo-dyeing using shibori methods. Each pillow top is made from a collectible square of shibori - these were produced for decorative purposes or for fancy furoshiki. The other side of each pillow is made from an authentic japanese indigo "noren" or doorway curtain, in identical indigo tones.

These pillows are substantial enough to be considered furniture. They are well-stuffed, reinforced and sturdy. While feather-filled, they have a small foam core for additional comfort and a small amount of springiness.
