The B. 1802 Rural Artist Collective uses traditional craftsmanship and production methods to create items with a modern sense of design.
No animal on the farm is more beloved than PolkaSpot, so we asked one of our master quilters to design a pillow in her honor.
Each of these pillows are hand-embroidered on 100% wool with needle felting - creating a dramatic, two dimensional, tactile design. PolkaSpot's eyelashes are made of tatting and the wool used for felting her trademark spots is hand-dyed using custom all-natural botanical dyes, including varieties of osage, indigo, cochineal, logwood gray, iron, fustic, madder, quebracho, cutch, lac, and logwood purple. Botanicals create their own unique shades difficult to reproduce in any other method.
Each down-filled pillow measures 17 x 17 inches and includes a patch on the back that can be autographed by Brent and Josh and numbered.
