Backstrap looms have been used since ancient times to weave narrow strips of fabric. These strips are often hand sewn together to form a larger textile. Botanical dyes, in this case indigo, are used to dye the threads prior to weaving.
Constructed from repurposed vintage textiles, this pillow is backed with antique handspun European linen and finished with an invisible zipper. Comes with our eco-friendly fiber insert in an unbleached cotton case.
