This velvet prickly pear cactus printed pillow is the perfect way to add a little green to your home if you're lacking in the green thumb department!
The front is made of custom printed velvet upholstery fabric. It's impossible to describe how soft this fabric is in real life! It's 100% polyester which allows for the richest colour printing and easy spot cleaning, but the level of softness and smoothness is comparable to a silk velvet.
This image was created from a watercolour painting by Robert Jacob Gorden during an expedition through the Northwest Cape (Africa) in the late 1700s. Image courtesy of the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam).
PLEASE NOTE: Since this pillow was printed using an image dating from the 18th century there are tiny blemishes/dots/discolourations within the print. This is not a stain on the fabric, this is part of the original art, demonstrating the age and history of the original artwork.
The back is made of pre-washed 100% linen fabric in a light beige/greige colour. Slightly darker than our standard "unbleached natural" linen that we use on our indigo pillows. Lastly, we added our subtly embossed faux leather Norwegian Wood label, also on the back of the pillow.
The finishing touch is 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 pillow case measures 19" x 19". We used a standard 20" square Ikea pillow in our photos.
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. Machine washing or drying is not recommended and will damage the finish on the zipper.
This item is made to order, please allow 2-4 days for sewing
