Batik Pillow Cover, Hand Dyed in Indonesia, Brown and White with Ostrich Egg Shells, 16”- Earth, 3
I made this! A pillow made from batiks from Indonesia, decorated with ostrich egg shell discs. The triangles, dark brown and creamy, came from vintage Indonesian batik sarongs. What a shame to cut them, but how nice to have a beautiful pillow! I accented the seams with flat African discs (Kenya) made out of ostrich egg shell. How I love using those discs in my work!
The backing of the pillow came from an upholstery sample, gorgeously textured, soft and creamy. The last photo shows the back. There is no zipper.
Care: Hand wash and dry flat. Pillow form not included. Most fabric stores carry pillow forms. A standard 16″ form will fit this pillow.
This listing refers you to my shop on Etsy. I’ve been there for a long time and sold on eBay for nine years before that. I will be adding new listings to my shop here on Artizan Made. I also manage shops for Afghan Tribal Arts and Oshiwa Designs. Purchased between the three shops can be shipped together. I will send an invoice for shipping separately if it involves items that don’t fit into a flat rate envelope.
I have loved working with my hands since childhood and have tried many craft techniques, finally settling on the textile arts as my main form of expression. I like pulling bits and pieces together to make a greater whole, assembling textures on to a form. But, my bins of fabric are on hold for now as I recently discovered a new obsession, knitting! We'll see how all of these interests merge together over time... I have also sold supplies and tools that I purchase from traders or find in thrift stores. Textile remnants and printing blocks are two favorites I look for. So you might find these, along with what I make, in my shop.
