Iranian Carpet with Overlapping Cartouches, Rectangular Pillow

Iranian Carpet with Overlapping Cartouches, Rectangular Pillow

Regular price $29.00 Sale

This 20 x 12 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with the motifs of a 17th-century Iranian carpet described by the Metropolitan Museum thus:

The tightly controlled pattern of compartments is formed by overlapping cartouches, which are exceptionally varied in coloring and adorned with finely drawn palmettes growing from a vine system.

This pillow has the same design on both sides. To make the pillow, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The fabric is pre-shrunk polyester — soft and durable, with a moisture-resistant coating. The pillowcase is machine washable, with a concealed zipper. The resilient polyester filling insert retains its shape, and can be washed by hand. Made in USA.
