Two patterns of black and white African mudcloth were combined to make this modern looking lumbar pillow.
The textile we use to create our pillows is handwoven in Mali from cotton which is dyed with fermented mud...it's simply incredible, and inarguably beautiful.
Due to the handmade nature of this fabric there will be slight variations or imperfections in the weave, the fabric itself is made up of many narrow strips of handwoven fabric which is then sewn together, so each panel has many seams, some of which are sewn in a rustic way. We consider this to be part of the beauty of this fabric, you can really see the handmade nature of the textile and the time that went into each piece!
PLEASE NOTE: These fabrics are all handwoven and hand dyed, so no two pillows will have the EXACT same pattern placement however they will be very very similar to the one shown (geometric random pattern in the middle, triangles pattern on each side)
The back of this pillow is made from a high quality black 100% linen fabric, and is finished off with a subtly embossed faux leather Norwegian Wood label.
To elevate our design we finished it off with a STUNNING custom made rose gold zipper. We've had these zippers custom made just for us in Los Angeles in one of the last zipper factories left in the USA and I am IN LOVE with them.
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
