I love a good down pillow. But it's difficult to find quality down filled pillows for children. When I saw this one I loved it immediately!
Handmade by the Pillow Factory, this pillow is truly a labor of LOVE.
And the one to the left belongs to one lucky Grosgrain reader!
It features a 95% duck / 5% down feather pillow form with a milky white linen cover with appliqued felt letters. The letters have been hand cut by the creative hand behind the Pillow Factory, Gioia.
The front is batted with a 97% cotton batting and muslin backing to give the pillow some structure and "strength" while remaining soft.
Envelope back closure that makes it easy to remove the case from the pillow form.
Gioia loves vintage fabric. At the Pillow Factory you'll find one.of.a.kind pillows that have been made entirely by her. Most of the fabrics used in the pillows have been selected at estate sales and are 100% pure-lovely vintage.
In choosing fabric she gravitates toward floral and geometric motifs, but really anything that catches her eye and that has bright colors.
These precious "finds" regularly come to her in the form of fabric by the yard but also dish towels, table runners, pillow cases, sheets, garment remnants. All of them are machine washed before the creation process.
Gioia is an Italian girl who moved to Southern California from a small town not far from Venice, Italy. She has lived here in the U.S for 3 years now, after marrying her husband, Patrick . She work part-time while finishing up a degree in Textile Restoration that she started in Florence.
She started her little Etsy shop to make a couple extra bucks while doing what she absolutely loves the most: sewing and making functional stuff. Sewing is one of the best "tools" her mom has equipped her with and she will always be thankful for the gift she has given her.
During her free time she loves to spend time with Patrick and friends. She also likes estate sales, rummage sales and thrift stores where she looks for fabric for her projects, fun clothes and stuff for the house.
Until March 10th (in the us only) Gioia is offering free shipping on everything in her shop. International customers will get 10% off the item price. Please convo Gioia before purchase to take advantage of this offer. Include your item desired, name- so she can reserve it and list it with the correct price, and say that grosgrain sent you!
