Did we hesitate before putting an uber trendy "quote pillow" in our marketplace? Not for a second. Having a daily reminder of the goodness you want to create in your life is smart and--in this case--pretty.
For this collaboration, with modern heirloom maker Casa & Co., we chose to emblazon our four favorite phrases, which also espouse our brand values; each mantra is stamped in a color that perfectly complements its mood:
- "Choose Ease" is stamped in a hipper version of turqoise that we call wave, perfect for a bedroom or sitting area in which you typically relax and invite comfort.
- "Embrace Wealth" is stamped in a saturated avocado green just right for those divine wicker chairs on your back patio.
- "Unleash Fun" is stamped in a creamy but vibrant mustard yellow that screams to be a part of the happiness + good times taking place in your kids' bedrooms.
- "Celebrate Joy" is stamped in a coral that is both refined and relaxed, and fits in amongst almost any decor--from boho beach to contemporary casual.
Each of these 16" square pillows are cut, hemmed, pieced together, and block-printed by hand. The pillow cover is 100% natural (and washable!) linen, the inks are non-toxic, and the insert is a hypoallergenic down-alternative. All told, this is a pillow you will love to look at, snuggle with, and (maybe--every now and then) throw at the kids.
about the maker
Upon discovering her pillows via Instagram, we identified immediately with Ashley's "perfect imperfect" design philosophy. Her brand, Casa & Co., encompasses her interior design experience; her passion for the wellness community; and her eagerness to explore the unknown. At the same time, her pillows are firmly grounded in a classic silhouette and age-old handicraft traditions.
This all makes sense given that Ashley herself is a knowledgeable but personable maker and business owner. Collaborating with her has been a rewarding experience because she so willingly participated in the brainstorming process, offering up ideas of her own and genuinely listening to concerns of ours. Our conversations showcased her many talents, from meticulous crafting to thoughtful decision-making, and revealed her to be an artist with a minimal ego--a rare occurrence in someone as talented as she is.
