About My Pillow Covers
Designer Pillow Covers were the first items to feature my artwork, and they're still near and dear to my heart. A beautiful bold cushion on a sofa or chair can add the perfect finishing touch to a room, and provide practical comfort too! I love to mix pillows in my own home, and I swap them out seasonally. I just zip a new cover over my inserts and my décor has a fresh new look!
I found a wonderful company in Montreal to supply my pillow covers. They're printed using eco-friendly inks and carefully finished by hand in small batches. The printing is fabulous, and their sewers are second to none. (Clearly I love their work, and you will too!)
FABRICS: I use two types of fabric for my pillow covers: Velveteen & Polycanvas.
Velveteen is a beautiful, softly brushed fabric which I use for Winter & Christmas designs, Personalized Kids' Pillows and Graduation Pillows, and Custom Pet Pillows. It gives me the best finish for photographs and typography, and is warm and cozy for the cooler months. It's supersoft yet amazingly durable, and I love it!
Polycanvas has a wonderful woven texture, and I use this fabric for most Summer & Fall designs, and Rustic Country Patterns. It's a cooler finish, and gives the pillow cover a painted canvas look. Although polycanvas has a woven texture, it still has a wonderfully soft and smooth touch.
Here's a fun comparison of the two fabrics printed with the same design...

Care Instructions - Both fabrics are 100% polyester, durable yet soft, and fade resistant. They can be spot cleaned, but they are also hand or machine washable in cold water on gentle cycle; lay flat to dry.
Outdoor Use - Although my pillow covers and inserts are not recommended for continuous outdoor use in full sun, they are fine for shaded, covered areas. If they get wet, just zip the cover off the insert and air dry both; or wash if needed as described above.
