What better way to kick off the year than with a little bedroom update? To bring a bit of a refresh to your space, we’ve teamed up with Parachute (our go-to for bedding basics) to create a minimal, yet statement-making lumbar pillow.
When the Parachute crew approached us to design an exclusive pillow for their collection, the partnership was a no brainer. Not only do they get our love for high-quality bedding, but they also share our passion for doing a little good in the world.
Parachute partners with Nothing But Nets, an organization bringing safe sleep to children in sub-Saharan Africa through malaria-prevention bed nets. To further their mission, we are donating one life-saving bed net for every lumbar pillow purchased on our site.
To celebrate the launch of this collaboration, we’re sharing the design thinking behind this pillow...
Inspired by clean, architectural lines and gradient hues, we set out to create a piece that was beautifully simple, yet equally complex. This is a collection of images from our "moodboard" that served as inspiration along the way.
To execute this vision, we teamed up with our weaving partners in Oaxaca to create a series of natural dyes. They use various mixtures of roots, bark, and ash to create this spectrum of greys. To bring out the rich variation, they meticulously hand-loom every pillow - a process that takes up to two days. We couldn't be happier with the end result.
