a question about pillows… i would would love everyone’s input!
i’m trying to cut down on the cost of my pillows– both the selling price and my production costs. one thing i’ve considered doing is not having a removable insert. in theory, i really prefer a removable insert, but in actuality, i never remove them! my pillows don’t get very dirty– and sometimes i’ll wipe them with a damp cloth and that’s sufficient. i’ve only removed and washed a pillow cover a couple times over the years. i’m torn about this, because i’ve always wanted my products to be of the highest quality… but i also think pillows should be affordable, so that you can buy a lot of them and pile them all over your home. do you regularly remove your pillow inserts and wash the covers?
even though it’s one of my favorites, i don’t buy world of interiors every month because it’s a little expensive. usually i’ll flip through it on the newsstand and if i see a few things that really catch my eye, i’ll buy it (which happens more often than not!). my eyes lit up when i saw this fabric by a (new to me) textile company called mockett & moquette. i don’t love most of the prints on their website, but i think this one is really wonderful. i would love to see it upholstered on a couch or chair. it looks a little bit like a print i’m working on now, so that might be part of why i’m so drawn to it…
