A Blacksmith, Shinichi Suzuki, Square Pillow

Regular price $28.00 Sale

This 18 x 18 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with A Blacksmith, a hand-colored albumen silver print by Shinichi Suzuki, circa 1873–1883. One side of the pillow shows the entire print; the other side shows a cropped version.

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. The pillowcase is machine washable, with a concealed zipper. The resilient polyester filling insert retains its shape, and can be washed by hand.
