Between the North Sea, Irish Sea, and the English Channel exists an amazing delight - England!
In honor of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, we've created this limited edition pillow (see back detail). Only 200 of the special pillow have been made - and each is numbered on the back.
This pillow is entirely HAND embroidered on light tea-colored 100% organic cotton. Amazingly it can take up to one week to embroider one pillow! It is also unique in nature since each artisan incorporates a certain flair and signature to his/her work. Accented with black velvet piping.
*20" x 20"
*100% Organic cotton
