I’ve been doing commissions of pillows out of vintage clothing–old to something new- that otherwise might just stay folded in a drawer, hanging in a closet, or be boxed up in the attic. Hopefully the things that we own are beautiful and having meaning.

You may remember this fabric that I found several months ago–a vintage Joseph Magin dress. Today, I found this raw silk and metallic fabric which I thought perfecto for the back. 15″ x 15″. Invisible zipper and white leather loop.

It’s dangerous to have Stanley paired with the pillows as the pillows will likely be overlooked, but he likes his photo taken. These pillows have a fantastic 1970’s back fabric. A linen cotton with pink & gray threads woven as warp and weft which creates a fantastic color.
