We designed and produced a limited edition of bedding; the Cloud Quilts. It is a collection of one-of-a-kind pillows and throws made with repurposed fabrics. Quilts are multi-layered textiles, traditionally composed of two or more layers of fabric or fiber. In our case, three layers are used, with a filler cotton/soya batting.
Each piece is hand dyed with plants, minerals, and earth pigments, and quilted by hand in Amsterdam. For this project, we worked closely with the talented fashion educator Alice Tsibulski, responsibly producing all pieces by hand. Through a slow and mindful process, our goal is not only to create truly unique products but also to inspire everyone to treasure the beauty of everyday things.
Guess who is going to be your next favorite hugging pal?!
"I dreamt of sleeping in the clouds.
So, Alice took them down, colored them with flowers, and turned my bed into heaven".
