Fabric: Shelter Half Cotton Canvas
This soft, durable cotton is upcycled from vintage, circa-1960s military shelter halves, or tents. Ours are mostly from Switzerland and occasionally from France or Holland.
Pieces made from these strong vintage cloths may have variations in color, weave and in some cases, gentle signs of former wear. This is considered inherent to the nature of these materials and a great part of their character.
Our WARM/COOL PILLOW is inspired by the age-old Swiss custom of keeping cleaned, sun-dried cherry stones from summer to fill small pillows for the winter. Traditionally, these were then heated in cast iron pans and used for warming up, and for therapeutic purposes.
Our pillows warm up in the oven (or microwave) to provide some love and healing to the body, and to keep beds warm on a cool night... Once warmed, they continue to release a soft, nutty aroma.
The pillows can also be kept in the freezer if what ails needs some cold pressure instead.
Filled with only US-grown, natural cherry pits
