Corner of a Sheet Inscribed with the Cartouche of Neferure, Rectangular Pillow
This 20 x 12 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with the Corner of a Sheet Inscribed with the Cartouche of Neferure, circa 1492–1473 BC.
One side of the pillow features the cropped textile, while the other side of the pillow shows the entire textile fragment, against a mat board and framed, as per the original in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
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.
