For this product we combined hand-dyed and hand-woven ikat fabric for one side and a burlap material from a coffee bean bag for another side. The cover fits standard 60cm x 60cm pillow covers and closes with a zipper on a side.The inspiration for this product came about a year ago when in Palermo, Sicily I came across a coffee store. I happened to ask a seller if they would be willing to sell a coffee bean bag - i had no idea for what, I just knew I wanted one. The seller, a generous Sicilian soul, gave me two bags for free.
We designed this pillow cover thinking of summer, balconies, gardens, possibly seating on the floor and using this as a cushion. The pillow cover is made of entirely organic fibers which in itself is a luxury.

I ordered 2 pillow covers and a very fragile bowl. The packaged traveled a far distance and it arrived at my doorestep in perfect condition. Really well packaged and fast delivery. Really like the quality and aeshetics of the poducts. My compliments to the makers of these products and thanks for the good service.
