Morrissey Fabric has built a reputation for carrying a wide range of vintage Indigo textiles from around the globe. African Indigo has been a top seller since the company began, and for good reason. This casual yet stylish African textile can be found in every shade of indigo imaginable so it coordinates with just about anything. Pillows made from this lovely indigo fabric will also sit pretty among a wide variety of interior spaces. The patterned textile used for the pillows above came from Mali, Africa and the graphic pattern seems to exude summer style.
Not sure what a "boho" pillow is? The term refers to global style, so vintage fabrics like African strip cloth fit the bill. There are many types of African indigo textiles available in the market. Vintage African Indigo fabric is a natural style choice for a summer pillow update. Often when I find these beautiful African Mossi pieces, they are in tough shape after decades of use. I do all I can to bring them back to life, but sometimes a burn mark, bleach stain, or hole cannot be undone. In a case like this, I use a patch to hide the damage. The patch becomes a decorative focal point like the Baule cloth stitched to the vintage African indigo seen above.
Vintage Hill Tribe fabric from remote areas of Asia make up into lovely batik pillows. Backed with 100% linen, the pillows seen here are definitely a summer must-have. They are available at Morrissey Fabric on Chairish.com or you can purchase the vintage batik textile in my shop to DIY your own pillow covers.
Light pink African mud cloth pillows have a softer, feminine appeal. Wouldn't they look lovely on a bed with a simple white cover? Pink mud cloth pillows with a white tribal print can be found in my on-line store, or you can make your own. I've got the pink mud cloth in a variety of prints available in my Etsy shop.
Kuba cloth is hand woven in the Congolese region of Africa. The grass fibers used to create African Kuba cloth give the finished kuba textiles a casual feel. Combined with a light color cotton or linen back, even black kuba cloth is well suited for summer.
Mexican Otomi fabric is completely embroidered by hand. An Otomi in Turquoise is a great option for a summer boho Pillow cover. I carry a selection of Mexican Otomi textiles in my shop. Take your pick of multicolored embroidery or a single color on natural cotton.
