This pillow cover is made to order and sewn from vintage handwoven indigo African mudcloth (pictured) which contains strips of hand-sewn panels creating a one-of-a-kind treasure. It has unique and beautiful vintage fading and wear! This exact pillow has already sold, but I can custom make one or more from the mud cloth I have in inventory. Please contact me for photos.
PILLOW COVER SIZE: 11"x19" finished size which fits a 12"x20" down insert perfectly. For a high-end look, you will want to size up 1-2" for your down insert compared to the pillow cover size. **Please note the insert is NOT included in purchase**
FABRIC: Vintage African Indigo Mudcloth on front, Oyster white colored Linen on back. Due to the nature of vintage textiles, there may be spots or marks. While they add to the authentic nature of the textile and do not detract from its beauty, please review all photographs before purchase.
SPECIFICATIONS: All edges are overlocked/serged. Zipper for closure.
CARE: I have pre-washed and treated the mudcloth to remove excess dye, but it still has the potential to rub-off (dye transfer). Avoid getting it wet or placing it on very light surfaces. Dry Clean Only.
RETURNS/EXCHANGES: Please see my Shop Policies for further information. Since all sales are final, please contact me with any questions prior to purchase. If you would like a small fabric sample before ordering, please contact me through the "request a custom order" link (below the pillow cover photos) and include your name and mailing address with your request.
Silk can be tricky to dye, but a vat of indigo is about as forgiving and natural as you can get. I always feel connected to the earth and ancient cultures when I "play" with indigo dye.
This month I'm offering silk scarves that have been created using Shibori techniques, or simple tie-dye methods. They can be used as fabric, or as an accessory.
Which one is your favorite? I will soon carry indigo dye kits here at the on-line store for those of you who are into DYI. Let me know if you are interested sooner rather than later!
Of course the ready-to-wear scarves make great gifts. Why not treat yourself?

I'm keeping very busy sewing up a special order for a local boutique...Plaid blanket scarves, capes, and throws are a major fashion trend this year. It's all about comfort. The plaids I use are 100% cotton so you don't have that static cling that comes with the less expensive, acrylic stuff.
How about knocking out a few holiday gifts early? These capes are introductory priced and I'm beginning to run low on the fabrics!
You can also DIY your own flannel scarf. Order two yards, to make two scarves 72" long x 22" wide. Now that's a bargain for 100% cotton items.
I also have solid colors available for those who just aren't into plaids. I've already sold out the ocean/turq. so don't wait too long.
