Esperanza kapok pleasure - the sequel

The filling of these pillows consists of kapok, it's a natural material that revives when putting it in the sun. The pillows were handfilled by Mieke, my favourite upholstery-contact in Ghent!
The combination of two fabrics makes the pillows adjustable to mood and season.
The combos are made of second-hand & overstock of belgian designers' cotton and wool.
The cover is removable and can be washed :-)
These pillows are an ode to Esperanza, the most beautiful place in the world.
Soon for sale at Elle et Gand, through my webshop or mail me directly if you want!

Please note the special detail from my cat Wax on one of the pillows :-)

Here you can find the former selection!

It was about time... several opened magazines and books filling up the floor in our house.
Nope, I'm not that kind of girl that uses receipts as a bookmark! It may sound strange, but I always thought books deserved more than that...
So, some days before going on holiday, there's another 'pending' 'done'!
I used some leftover cardboardcovers from chinese take-away boxes, aswell as some sticky japanese fabric which had been waiting for a goal!
Those that I'm not using myself are soon for sale @ my shop :-)
