Have you ever been in an antique home and seen an 18th or 19th century silhouette portrait? Or maybe when you were growing up your parents had one made of you? Well here’s a modern twist on a classic idea, and it’s a whole lot cozier than the paper variety silhouettes you may have on your walls!
You may recognize the handsome silhouettes above as those of Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, the Fabulous Beekman Boys and founders of Beekman 1802. Jen and I feel very honored to be making these pillows in celebration of Josh and Brent’s second wedding anniversary, which, by tradition, is the cotton anniversary. These pillows are available in your image or images with a variety of colors of wool backs or backed with 100% organic cotton fabric. Additionally, the pillows are stuffed with 100% organic cotton batting in a cotton muslin case.
The process of making these is extremely personalized. Once your order is placed, Beth will be in touch to arrange for you to provide the photographs that will be the basis of your design artwork, and to talk about the colors you would like for your hooked background and pillow backing. Once your artwork is sketched out, you will have the opportunity to approve it before the hooking begins. Once approved, Beth or Jen will hand hook and sew your pillow.
This is what the artwork looks like when submitted for customer approval.
These would make wonderful wedding or anniversary gifts, or keepsakes of growing children.
