When I was young, I had a pen pal “across the pond” with whom I regularly corresponded. I loved to read and re-read all her letters; wish I still had them today. In high school years, my friend Nancy Guderian moved away. The two of us wrote often, using the same postage stamp over and over dozens of times by covering it with layers of cellophane tape so that the inked cancellation could be wiped off. Heck, I might be a felon.

There is something soul-satisfying about handwritten letters, yet we seem to be drifting further and further away from this civilized activity. Is it possible that we are attracted to images of handwriting in response to the crush of instant messaging, texting and electronic mail?

This handcrafted pillow bears the images of beautiful French signatures, handwritten notations and postal cancellations from decades gone by, in beautiful shades of chocolate, rust and gold on natural linen. Backed with solid matching chocolate brown and featuring an envelope closure that allows for easy removal of the fiberfill insert for laundering. Cover may be spot cleaned or dry cleaned. This listing is for one pillow. Each varies from all others due to the placement of the pattern on the wide repeat of the fabric.

Measures 17”x17” and about 5” thick. Intended for interior use; NOT an indoor-outdoor fabric. Please enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
