Handspun Berkeley Pillow
While in Ethiopia, Rose & Fitzgerald spent the day at Sabahar, a green haven in the middle of Addis Ababa, and one of the premier weaving workshops in the region. It boasts a talented staff of weavers, spinners, dyers and finishers who turn cotton and silk into works of art. They immediately fell in love with this pillow design and admired their fair trade practices and approach.
The all-natural cotton was handpicked and then spun on looms and the dyes used are natural and non-toxic. The tiny black spots or specs that you sometimes see in the material are from natural seeds of the cotton, making each piece unique and slightly textured—but no less soft.
Included is a plush down-alternative insert. This pillow arrives ready to be enjoyed!
