Plush Pillows – U.K. Style

29Jun06


For the British readers among us I found some gorgeous throw pillows from London-based EcoCentric.

Their organic alpaca cushions come in beautiful neutrals, are soft and hypo allergenic. According to their site, the fabric is hand spun, woven and dyed by a women’s cooperative in Peru and then finished off by British designers. Beware however, the pillows are filled with duck down, so if you’re vegan you may consider this item an eco-no-no.

Thankfully other options abound. I’m attracted to their bold solid and striped Felt Cushions which are filled with a revolutionary eco-fiber called Ingeo, made from biodegradable cornstarch. Designed and made in the Netherlands, these pure wool pillows are dyed using the “oeco-tex100” environmental, health and fire safety standard. Reasonably priced at £39.00 (international plane ticket not included.)
