We’re so excited to release this series of pillow in collaboration with Sarah Nsikak of La Réunion. We created this pillow sample a few years and then tucked it away in our back room until we found the right partner. We fell in love with Sarah’s gorgeous patchwork and quilted pieces and we’d say it’s a match made in heaven. These hand quilted pieces are made exclusively using recycled material sourced from fashion designers based in New York.
Pillow is approximately 18" W x 7" Thick. Spot Clean and Do not put into washer/dryer.
About: Sarah Nsikak is a Nigerian-American living in Brooklyn, New York. Her love of textiles led her to working in the fashion industry for several years after completing a Masters Degree in Art Therapy. The exorbitant amount of waste generated in the fashion industry inspired a re-routing back to her art practice. These hand quilted pieces are made exclusively using recycled material sourced from fashion designers based in New York. Special textiles are also sourced through vintage stores and estate sales.
La Réunion is named after the island off the coast of Madagascar. The many influences for this project include the vibrant stories of African culture, post colonial African countries, ideas surrounding reclaimed beauty, togetherness, color, joy, and inviting ones self back to what was always there all along. It is materializing an idea of sacred and unabashed individuality. Everyone is invited.
