Tell me about the Value of My Vintage Pillow?2018-05-12T00:08:57-07:00
My Vintage Pillow designs offers terrific decorating and functional value supporting important factors including...

  • high end design and construction
  • handloomed/hand dyed fibres such as Wool, Alpaca, Llama, Mohair, Leather, Cotton & Linen
  • one of a kind absolute original single or matching sets
  • historical origins and period artistry

When you consider the high cost of new textiles and high overhead corporate entities, My Vintage Pillow can be considered a bargain....true value for what falls into the category of high end soft furnishing. It's a labour of love and a testament to Vintage design style.

What’s your design process?2018-05-12T00:06:06-07:00
Let’s just say…I spend many hours rummaging through grandma’s closets. The reality is that it’s a constant hunt, takes a keen eye and plenty of patience to find such charming and interesting textile candidates. It takes artistic vision and creativity…which have been an addiction for me. I look at a vintage fabric that is torn or stained and generally has been ignored for far too long…. I often see the potential of repurposing it into a new high-end pillow design that incorporates modern complimentary textiles and design ideas. Each creation is individual, personal and extremely rewarding.
Will My Vintage Pillow stand up to normal wear and tear?2018-05-12T00:07:12-07:00

Absolutely yes! Whether it be a 100 year old French tapestry or a hand knitted Bolivian Shawl, the vintage textiles are reinforced by bonding them to a light weight modern cotton backing. This adds much support and stability and they easily stand up to normal wear and tear.

How do I clean and care for my vintage pillows?2018-05-12T00:07:36-07:00

My Vintage Pillows are made from all natural fibres that have been prewashed. If you find they need some TLC, hand wash them with a mild or natural detergent. It's then important to 'lay flat to dry'. Alternatively, dry cleaning is a safe option.
