New in the shop: Embroidered Pillows for Charity

Posted by: Nellie Laskow

While pillows are often decorative elements they also add so much personality to a room, reflecting who you are and what you love. Ultimately our goal is to make each item in your space feel intentional and reflect you. With this in mind, we’re reflecting our values with this collection as well: Twenty-five dollars from every sale will be donated to two organizations we believe in and support, Union of Concerned Scientists and Amnesty International. Union of Concerned Scientists develop and implement innovative, practical solutions to the planet’s most pressing problems, from global warming to finding sustainable ways to reduce the threat of nuclear war. Amnesty International is a global movement that works to obtain basic human rights for people all over the world. It’s the largest grassroots human rights organization and their work has affected millions of lives. In keeping with our desire to spread positivity with this collection, all our pillows are embroidered in India by skilled craftspeople who practice a time-honored technique that just can’t be reproduced anywhere else. We then turn to a team based locally in Brooklyn, New York to sew and assemble each piece.

Spreading compassion and respect to those who need it most, it’s a lovely symbol of security.With tones of blue and grey, these pillows pair well with most color schemes and have a soothing effect on a room. Each piece is embroidered by skilled craftspeople in India and then sewn locally in Brooklyn. As a bonus, $25 from each sale will be donated to Amnesty International as a way of giving back.

Fallen Leaves and Stiched Leaves Pillows

Falling leaves are at once nostalgic and comforting, a reminder of the passage of time and also its predictability. The motif we developed is an homage to our environment and its natural beauty. In honor of the inspiration behind the design, we will donate $25 from each sale to Union of Concerned Scientists.
