5 Etsy Handmade Pillow Designers

Designer Roundup

From California to the UK to Seoul to America's South, these five Etsy pillow designers offer customers a wide-range of styles and price points. A search for pillows on Etsy uncovers hundreds of sellers, but these shops stood out for varying reasons—value, color, pattern, care, and eco-friendly fabrics and dyes, just to highlight a few. Couple, where all pillows are handmade using high-quality designer fabrics exclusively woven in England, sells pillow covers ranging from bright and graphic to traditional and floral. On Etsy since 2007, Couple is UK duo Julian and Steph's recent adventure. Established in 2010, this Etsy store has two ratings, both 100% positive. Pillows are sold in pairs for $22, a great value.

Minimonos: Handmade from their patterns to their stitches, these beautifully silkscreened pillows feature trees, iris flowers, owls, carp, and landscapes. Minimonos pieces are printed using environmentally-friendly inks. Based in London, Minimonos established their Etsy shop last month. Stop by, place an order, and be the first to review! These 16" by 16" silkscreened, hand sewn pillows cost $55 each with an additional $12 shipping charge to anywhere outside the UK (shipping in the UK is $5).

PillowMio's slogan "Handmade Decorative Pillows from Popular Fabric Designers" says it all. Based in California, PillowMio's pillow covers are well priced, ranging from $16 to $19 and available in sets for $24 to $34. PillowMio uses coordinating fabrics on the same pillow—one for the front and one for the back, giving display options while staying within the same color family. With 176 shopper reviews, this seller's rating is 100% positive.

TurquoiseTumbleweed's Etsy store is filled with traditional patterns in bright colors. Located in South Carolina, this designer has been selling on Etsy since March 2010; she has 109 reviews, all 100% positive. Pillow covers range in price from $35 to $50, depending on size and fabric. Traditional patterns aren't usually that interesting to me, but TurquoiseTumbleweed's pillows are a bright, fresh take on what could be stuffy patterns.

Seller VintageJamie is located in Suwon City, near Seoul, South Korea. She opened her Etsy store in 2008 and has 67 reviews, all 100% positive. She offers free shipping, worldwide. VintageJamie's pillow cover designs are clean and organic, many sewn from earth toned and neutral fabrics. Sprinkled throughout her collection are graphic patterns of illustrated California maps and Seoul, Paris, and London subway lines. Prices range from $25 to $50, depending on size and fabric.
