Hand painted in watercolor hues inspired by the Pacific Ocean, our hemp pillow covers are exquisite works of textile art. Artisan Chanee Vijay devotes meticulous attention to each length of fabric, working with the hemp's rich natural texture as she brushes on the water-based tints and metallic accents. Organic variations in the shading and borders, including fillets of visible raw hemp, speak to the artist's hand and the character of the weave. Each pillow cover is one of a kind.
Woven from 100% natural, sustainably grown, unbleached European hemp. Shifts in dye lots, hand painting, irregular border lines and variations in the slubby texture of the yarn are inherent to every pillow cover's unique character. Tiers of shaded color accented with metallic. Backed in natural hemp. Tailored by Vijay's mother, Phyllis, and finished with knife edges. Brass zipper closure with brass bead and tassel pull.
OUR COLLECTION'S MUTED COLORS WERE FOUND IN THE SKY WHEN THE DAY WAS ALMOST BEGINNING AND ENDING, AND IN THE WAVES OF THE PACIFIC ON A CLOUDY DAY. ALL OF THE PILLOW COVERS ARE MADE OF BEAUTIFUL ORGANIC FRENCH HEMP AND HAND PRINTED OR DYED WITH ECO-FRIENDLY INKS.
MOST OF THE PILLOW COVERS AND WALL PANELS ARE ONE OF A KIND, LETTING CHANEE DESIGN IN THE MOMENT - HAND TO FABRIC - RATHER THAN FOLLOW HER FORMER SCREEN PRINTING SCRIPT. THE MOVEMENTS ARE JAGGED, UNPREDICTABLE AND SOMETIMES FLAWED AND BLEEDING.
The Plains Collection
In 2014, Chanee partnered with her mother to create the Plains collection. It is at its essence, plain - made from modest yet beautiful organic French hemp. Inspired by her mother's humble Midwest origins, Chanee designed a functional, durable and refined collection of aprons, napkins and hand towels for the relaxed modern lifestyle.
The first Collections
Hand Pulled ScreenPrints
This screen printed pillow collection was influenced by Chanee's travels across southern India where she was married in 2007. The 2013 Collection reflects her love for the geometric and historic patterns in her former city of Philadelphia.
