A simple geometric pillow cover made using traditional English honeycomb patchwork.
The hexagons in this pillow have been hand sewn to form a cross shape. The cross was then machine appliqued onto a heavy white linen. The fabrics used are a mix of French vintage, recycled and new cotton fabrics.
The back of this cushion is also in white linen.
Honeycomb patchwork makes my heart melt. This labour intensive technique, originated in England in the 18th century, absolutely celebrates the 'mend and make do' lifestyle. With a very modern twist, this cover is a clin d'oeil to this.
- This listing is for the cover only, it does not include the inner pad to reduce shipping costs. Please contact me if you would like to purchase the cover with pad.
- Envelope closure on the back.
- Machine wash cold - the linen has been pre-shrunk and all seams zigzagged for durability.
- Measures 16" x 12" (40cm x 30cm).
