Cloth and Goods: Japanese Vintage Indigo Pillows

Journal
Words by Rolan GreggNever have I taken such a firm and committed inventory of my home decor than after being snowed in for three days.  After watching an unhealthy amount of reality television and eating through the dregs of my snack stash, I started really noticing the furniture, textures, and lighting that surrounded me.  I became sharply aware that it was all in need of a little pick me up.  With springtime on the horizon, I wanted to add some life to my living room and a strong swatch of color.  I checked out Cloth & Goods, an online store from Portland-based interior designer Melissa Newirth, and was immediately drawn to the collection of Japanese Vintage Indigo Pillows.

This limited collection was created on hand-operated looms from both new and vintage handwoven Japanese textiles.  Their rich indigo color is the result of a natural plant-based dyeing technique that was achieved by using traditional Japanese methods.  The backs of the pillows are made with new 100% cotton fabric and dyed a vibrant shade of indigo.shark water slide on sale

Cloth & Good is such an inspiring textile and design shop that a stroll through their gallery should be mandatory around this time of year.
