this listing is for ONE pillow cover only.

this pillow cover coordinates with The Returning quilt. the fabrics used in this series are have all exclusively been hand dyed by me.

this series was inspired by my desert heart. my home away from home. the place i once thought i might never see the same way again, but upon returning i realized it had never really changed. the place where old memories are put to rest and new memories are built. you can always go back - sometimes you just have to do it differently and with different people and a different perspective.

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 :
