A mod floral pop for your home! Hanabi, one of my favorite Japanese words, illustrates its meaning ("fireworks") with the words "flower" and "fire." I love this image and created this original design with both a dynamic burst and a delicate, happy floral in mind. This decorative pillow cover is carefully printed in six subtly metallic shades which will be the start of many conversations. Or simply a cozy place to rest your head for an afternoon siesta.

The inspiration for my home goods comes from California coastal and desert living, scandinavian minimalism, midcentury textiles & furniture, and the earthy, organic, mellow vibe of the 60s and 70s. If you (or your mom) ever sipped herbal tea from a hand-thrown mug while wearing a patterned caftan -- or maybe you just wish! -- then I think we're going to get along just fine.

My original designs come about from whims, notions and lots of journal doodling in the garden. Then I turn sketches into hand-cut printing blocks and start stirring the ink and cutting the fabric. Each impression is made by hand with care in my smoke-free San Francisco home studio with custom-mixed, water-based fabric inks (heat-set for permanence). Most of my fabric ink mixes feature a bit of metallic sheen, which makes a striking contrast with the nubby linen, the star of the show. If you love linen, too, you know: it's an ancient fabric that's cool to the touch, drapes like a dream and is naturally allergy-free and antibacterial. Such good stuff.

READY TO SHIP: All items listed are ready to send your way on the next shipping day (currently: Tuesdays & Fridays). **Just make sure your order is placed by 6PM PST on the preceding day. Thanks!**

+ + + + + +

HAPPILY HAND-MADE: All items are one-of-a-kind, printed by hand, so (very) slight variances may occur in placement and ink coverage. Please be aware that all computer monitors display color differently, though I always shoot in natural light and carefully color-correct product images.

CARE: Machine (gentle cycle) or hand wash cold > dry flat (or damp-dry in dryer) > hot steam iron.

+ + + + + +

SHIPPING: All items ship out via USPS first class, at which time I'll convo you to let you know your item is on its way. If you require faster shipping, no problem: just convo me prior to your purchase and we can calculate the costs.

+ + + + + +

PACKAGING: All pillow covers are carefully packaged by rolling them in plain (unprinted) newsprint around a recycled cardboard tube -- rather than folding, which results in unnecessary creasing. Attached to the pillow cover will be a kraft paper tag, embellished with copper triangle detailing. I use recycled tube outer mailers, and I don't use bubble wrap or other plastic padding. Additional newsprint will be added as stuffing as required, to ensure your pillow cover arrives unscathed.
