Pillow cover featuring a Jacquard tapestry woven by hand on a computer-assisted Jacquard loom.
It is woven with a local lamb's wool, prepared by the artist from A to Z (washing, carding, dyeing with the heavy metals-free dyes, spinning on a traditional spinning wheel). The handwoven fabric has a nice texture and is very soft to touch.
The writing says in French “La mesure de l'amour c'est d'aimer sans mesure" which means "The measure of love is love without measure", a quote from Saint Augustine of Hippo. The design of the tapestry includes the artist's doodles and handwriting.
Size 16 x 16 inches (41 x 41 cm).
Materials: handwoven tapestry - wool, cotton, linen, polyester. Support fabric - 100% cotton velvet. Zipper closure for easier care.
Care instructions: to wash, leave in a lukewarm water with some mild detergent for half an hour. Rince delicately in water of the same temperature. Squeeze excess water by wrapping inside a bathroom towel and rolling gently. Hang to dry or dry flat. Iron on wool setting with steam, barely touching the surface of the tapestry, or steam it with a steamer.
Please, note that a pillow form is not included, unless it is a local pick-up.
