Every year, mother designs and builds us a new pair of hand-embroidered pillows that feature what flowers we hope to grow in our garden soon. This little family ritual usually coincides with the Turkish (pagan) new year of March 22; and if the garden is gray and wet by then, we use our 'new year' pillows inside, to brighten our spirits and daydream all over with.

But if it is sunny and bright, the pillows are quickly transported outside, to be curled all over on. (Daughter -yours truly- pretty much abuses the pillows, sister wants to remark; but they wash pretty well, so, no worries.)

At the end of each year, we hand the pillows over to our dearest friends, in honor of the beautiful times, hopes and dreams we share.

We'll be happy to send a bit of our garden to your way this year.

(But, we will also be happy to make you custom design pillows, which can feature what you dream to grow in your real or imaginary garden. Just let us know!)

+ Completely hand-embroidered with top of the line DMC threads, the beautiful colors on these heirloom quality pillows will not fade or wash out.

This item takes a jaw dropping amount of hours to make (but it is such happy, pleasant work that we are glad to make it).

+ This item features:

One hand-embroidered pillowcase, a little hand-loomed silk sachet of wild flower seeds and a hand-made, anti-allergic inner case in the size of your pillowcase, for you to stuff the pillow with the filling of your choice.

The order arrives in a handsome hand-made bag that can be reused.

27,5 inch x 13 inch
(69 cm x 33 cm)

Machine wash at cool temperature and dry flat.

+ Please let us know if you would like us to add pillow-filling too; we are a bit hesitant about sending the pillowcases with pillows as it significantly alters the shipping costs.

+ This item will be made for you. Please read our shop policies.

+ This pillowcase is an original design by Sibel Gunel, who reserves all rights through her company; which also reserves all image rights.

All our items are one hundred percent hand-made; small irregularities are the - much beloved - norm we set.
