Hippie Gnome Pillow
Garden gnomes are found all over the world, including the island of Burano, Italy. Each gnome likes to represent the house he lives in or near, so they try to be as colorful as possible. Sir Winslow first visited this region in 1924 to learn more about the fish in the Northern Venetian Lagoon. The gnomes in this area are known to be expert fishermen and the wives help the townswomen with the lace making the area is known for also. Sir Winslow was very impressed with the way the gnomes and town inhabitants worked together to make Burano such a colorful place.
Each pillow is unique from the tip of his hat to the belt on his trousers! Inspired by Rein Poortvliet, the Dutch artist, these garden creatures would love to come live with you.
It is made from cotton, denim and felts.
All my items are cut out individually by hand so there will be variations. It is what gives the decorative pillows character and personality. Please ask for color variations and they certainly can harvest more than mushrooms.
Measures 12 by 22 inches
The pillow is stuffed with poly fiber fill and is machine washable. Will need to be air dried or on a delicate setting.
Please allow a week for shipping.
