CloseUpCollage

Jen and I have been busy making new things for the Beekman 1802 Mercantile.  Some of them just went up, and some are for the future (you’ll just have to wait…).  You can click on the hyperlinks below to see them in the Mercantile.

A word about buckwheat pillows…

We infuse buckwheat seeds with essential oils to make lovely and soothing scents.  These go in to the pillows which are then microwavable for warmth, or freezable for coolness, useful for muscle aches, headaches, or simply just for relaxation.  We encourage you to give them a try.  They’re pretty too!

This is Jen’s Lavender Jasmine Buckwheat warming pillow.   It’s inspired by the laying hens at the Beekman farm, with the 1802 logo numbers on the front.

Also Jen’s, this is her Orange Cinnamon Buckwheat warming pillow.  This is a modern take on the classic vintage kitchen towels of the 1930s and 40s.  Jen is working on a red one as well.

This is Beth’s Baby Goat Lavender Buckwheat pillow, inspired by Farmer John’s playful baby goats.

While you are looking at our pillows, check out the rest of the beautiful offerings at Beekman 1802.  Josh and Brent carefully curate the Beekman 1802 Rural Artist Collective to bring you the best of American craft.  We’ve said it before but we are so very happy to be part of Beekman 1802 and this initiative to promote and preserve American hand work.

Happy hooking, and happy shopping!  – Beth

Be Cool or Warm Up with Buckwheat Pillows and Sachets

Lavender buckwheat sachets, 4″ x 4″, available in our Etsy shop.

Have you discovered buckwheat pillows and sachets?  Jen and I are starting to make a line of them for our shop and also exclusive editions for Beekman 1802.

Here’s what’s so great about buckwheat seeds:  used to stuff pillows, they can either be put in the freezer to make cold packs or popped in the microwave (please be careful – do NOT overheat!) for warm packs.  These are wonderful for boo boos, headaches, muscle aches, stress relief, or just enjoyment of the scent.

We add essential oils and botanicals to our buckwheat seed pillow interiors to create lovely fragrances to soothe the senses.

Keep an eye on our Etsy shop and in the pillow section of home decor at Beekman 1802 for more offerings as they become available.
