This vintage African indigo tie dye fabric is so irresistible to a textile lover like myself!
We sourced this fabric from an LA based family based company who imports these vintage (used) textiles for us. Indigo is a rich natural dye that gets better with age. The dye takes on a beautiful faded patina over time, just like your favorite pair of jeans!
Due to the handmade and VINTAGE nature of this fabric there will be slight variations or imperfections in the weave and there may be some areas that are subtly mended or have small discolorations/stains. We consider this to be part of the beauty of this vintage fabric. You can really see the handmade nature of the textile as well as its history.
The exact pattern will vary from pillow to pillow.
We have multiple listings for the different shades of indigo.
This shade is considered LIGHT VINTAGE. This light shade is created through many years of actual use/washing, therefore this LIGHT shade is the most delicate of indigo fabrics, and will show the most wear and tear. It is not a light dye that is used, it has become faded from many years of actual use! Due to this delicate nature we line all light indigo pillow fronts with cotton muslin for durability.
We wanted to elevate our design with the addition of a custom made rose gold zipper. We've had these zippers made just for us in Los Angeles in one of the last zipper factories left in the USA!
The back of this pillow is made from a high quality unbleached 100% linen fabric, and is finished off with a subtly embossed faux leather Norwegian Wood label.
The pillow case measures 15" x 25". We used a 16" x 26" Ikea pillow in our photos. We find that sizing up 1-2" gives you a fuller look, however this cover will also work with a 15"x25" pillow form.
This listing is for the PILLOW COVER ONLY. Why? Well, pillows forms are big and bulky, which makes the shipping cost go WAY up, and nobody likes that! It's actually much more cost effective for you to buy your pillow filling locally. That way you can choose the exact quality you want to buy (feathers vs. polyfil) or maybe you even already have one at home that you'd like to reuse!
Gently hand wash (not in a machine) or dry clean, hang to dry. All fabrics have been pre-washed so will not shrink or bleed, however machine washing or drying is not recommended
