This pillow is really pretty on my couch, paired with the similar one in navy and two floral pillows. The design is delicate and the coral, mustard, and navy on cream look beautiful. The weaving work is well done and the pillow is firm and supportive without being too stiff. I’m pleased with this purchase and am happy to support traditional textile artists in India.
Pretty and comforting
Eyed this pillow for a long time and so glad it became available again. The colors and the stitching are beautiful! So happy to be able to add it to my home. Thanks The Citizenry, especially now with travel limits, it’s great to have a resource for unique, handcrafted items from around the world.
I use it to read in bed and it’s just the right size to support my lumbar area. (I’m a relatively short woman.) The embroidery is gorgeous. In short, it makes me happy whenever I glance upon it.
Wendy, Thank you for your note! We’re thrilled to hear you love your new pillow — and that we’re not the only ones who get happy when we see a pillow we love. Here’s to curling up in bed with a good book and a good pillow. There’s nothing better. With gratitude, The Citizenry Team
Very nice pillow; beautiful stitching with vivid colors.
