Kurai Sashiko Pillow
Made by a master of the sashiko craft, Keiko creates artful stitched patterns while also letting the “fabric tell her where to go.” The result? An accent pillow that feels like something so much more – a handmade art piece, infused with the tradition of sashiko stitching.
Hand-stitched in Takayama, Japan, each pillow takes a day to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair-trade environment.
This pillow comes ready to style. Cruelty-free down alternative insert included.

Never wash your pillow cover in a washing machine - this will cause the natural dyes to bleed and ruin the rich color of the fabric. Absorb any liquid spills with paper towels or a clean cloth. Dry cleaning is the best option for removing stains or occasional cleaning.

We received this pillow yesterday and are very happy with it. It is a great size -- thick enough to actually... be a pillow (unlike those from some stores that are so thin they're clearly just meant for decoration). The fine blue stripes on the lower half are a little less bright than they appear in the photos, but not too far off. The fabric is soft, the white stitching is neat and seems sturdy, and the design is more interesting than a plain pillow, but not too distracting in a room where we already have a lot of other visual interest going on. Very pleased!
The pillow was so uninteresting visually that i sent it back to you. It looked better on your site than it did in reality.
