Pillowcases for the Bambillo Pillow

We have pillowcases for the Bambillo Pillow.

I recently had someone asking for a custom made pillowcase to fit their newly purchased Bambillo pillow. What we discovered was that our standard Sleep Frog pillowcase fits the Bambillo! An easy fix for the larger than normal sized pillow.

The Vida jury is out on the eco-ness of Bamboo, but if you have an over sized pillow such as the Bambillo we have a pillowcases to suit, even if we have to custom make it for you.

Summer weight Organic Cotton

Last of the stocks from  Greenfields Trading Company & Bishoptons Trading Company

Here in Wellington in the last couple of weeks, we have had a few very hot summery days. It has reminded me that I must get on and make some summery dresses.

We have the perfect low cost lightweight organic fabric for dresses, loose floaty skirts and shirts at only $20 per metre.  And they are perfect for duvet covers.  You will find them here.

These fabrics were acquired from the last remaining stocks from Greenfields Trading Company and Bishopton Trading Company.   Both companies have closed recently, However, theirs is a real feel good story. The fair trade scheme that covered children’s education right through to the age of 17, has meant that the current generation have now gone onto higher education.

Linen Cushions by Fiona Thompson Further Reduced.

We have further reduced the price on the Fiona Thompson Linen Cushions.  This is a collection of one off cushions.  Fiona did a degree in textile design at Massey University in Wellington, and these cushions are a result of her final year project. She said she needed to get these designs ‘out of her system’, and onto fabric! So they are never to repeated again, so get in quick before they all go!

Organic Buckwheat Pillows

Sorry these Buckwheat Pillows are currently not available.  It is proving no longer possible to source the husks as the Wellington business is no longer making the cereal. The buckwheat is either hulled overseas or is squashed up when producing flour making it un-useable. We are currently working on some 100% Organic NZ Wool Pillows. Please contact us if you are interested in these as an alternative.

Just added to the website. These fabulous Buckwheat Pillows, made from organic buckwheat husks left over from making cereal, and organic cotton percale from our Sleep Frog Bedding collection.   These pillows are sewn here in Wellington where the cereal is also made.

Buckwheat pillows mould to you and are surprisingly comfortable.  They also come with a bag of spare buckwheat to top up and get the consistency perfect just for you.
