Metric: 35 x 35 cm

This pillow cover is made from textile remnants from old saris and embroidered textiles. The remnants are sewn on to a cotton base and then edged with a thick cotton cord, sewn down. The textile remnants are fragile, so if you need to clean it, I recommend dry cleaning only.

Cowrie shells have sewn on to the top and can be easily removed if you prefer the design without the shells. The embroidered parts have some shisha mirrors, adding to more bling!

Pillow form is not included, but is a pretty easy size to find in hobby and fabric shops. The backing is made of a black cotton, very similar to the last photo. Zipper works. Cotton fabric and thread. There may be small spots of a chalky material. This is starch or glue and can be easily flicked away with a fingernail. Click on zoom option for larger images.

The third photo is of the back of the pillow. Zippers do work, although they are not great quality. The last photo shows similar pillows that have been filled. See all of our pillows in stock here:

This is old stock from a small importer, age unknown, but likely around 20 years.
