inspiration + d e s i g n :
this series of 4 pillow covers was designed to mimic the night sky in all of its colorful sunset, and dark starry glory.
this listing is for the series of 4.
the variety of fabrics are a mix of kona and cotton solids, hand dyed fabrics made by me, and recycled linens (sheets, pillowcases). i love using recycled/reused/repurposed fabrics in an effort to reduce waste, and also because i believe that fabrics which have already been used carry stories of their own.
note: due to the nature of recycled fabrics being pre-used, and also the nature of hand dyed fabrics - any markings, discoloration, or any other "spots" on these fabrics are to be considered part of the fabric itself. each has been washed before being put into the creations.
the hand dyeing process is lengthy, but humbling (as i love being able to create projects with fabrics dyed with my own hands!). it includes choosing the dye colors, prepping the fabric in soda ash, applying the dye, and finally rinsing, and washing/drying/ironing them before use. this process takes up to 48 hours per piece of fabric. i dye in small batches only, in order to ensure that each fabric created is one of a kind and completely unique. even if i were to use the same dye color, the textures and tones created in each piece can never be 100% recreated.
all of my items are handmade by me, with love, as one-of-a-kind pieces of usable and functional art.
d e t a i l s :
