Vintage Fabric Cushion Cover | Coral Jet
HANDMADE IN PORTUGAL
These sun-washed linen pillow covers are upcycled treasures inspired by the vintage cereal bags of Portugal.
The municipality of Miranda do Douro sits at the Spanish border in Europe alongside the Douro River. This region in northeastern Portugal near the oldest border in Europe is home to forgotten treasures: Linen cereal bags and the women and looms who weave them.
These pillow covers are kept as natural and original as possible when upcycled and repurposed. Traditionally, most cereal sacks were woven in the natural colour of the fibres (white and grey), but the bags uncovered in this region are full of bold colours, making them unique in Portugal. Using the side that was exposed to the sun’s rays provides for their now-muted colours, which fade naturally with the strong Portuguese sunshine.
