Cochineal and Leaf Dyed Pillow

Cochineal and Leaf Dyed Pillow


This colorful pillow is made of fabric that has been dyed using only natural materials. The leaf prints are made from real leaves in a time consuming, but completely environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing" or "botanical dyeing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used.

Real leaves are gathered and bundled with the fabric making each piece completely one of a kind. This pillow has prints of cotinus, or smokebush, leaves. The bright pink color comes from a natural dye called cochineal.

The fabric on the front of the pillow is a gorgeous washable Pendleton wool bordered by cream-colored cotton. The back is made of the same cotton.

You will receive the exact pillow shown in the photos.

The bottom has an invisible zipper to insert the pillow form. Pillow fits a standard 16 X 16 inch (41 X 41 cm) pillow form. Pillow form is included.

Care & Handling:
Fabrics are machine washable but unless pillow cover becomes very soiled I recommend the following care.
- Gently hand wash, cold water.
- Use mild soaps.
- Tumble dry, or hang.
- Iron using wool setting.
- Do not dry clean.
