Our Linden pillows are intricately detailed and handcrafted exclusively for Crate and Barrel. To craft these beautiful textiles, artisans begin by boiling, washing, and bleaching each strand of yarn. Divided into skeins on long poles, the yarn is then dipped into a dye bath made from a paste of carefully measured pigments. Dried in the sun, the yarns are power loomed to create a distinctive tone-on-tone coloring reminiscent of textured grasscloth. The generously sized, rich cobalt blue pillow is detailed with a double-open flange and includes your choice of a plush feather-down or lofty down-alternative insert at no extra cost.
