From the carefully selected materials, to the boldly embroidered lettering, it’s a beautifully personal embodiment of a universally important idea.”

Part art and part pillow, you’ll be investing in something special when purchasing this one-of-a-kind item.

“About the designer: Galya Rosenfeld’s work sits on the lines between fashion, design, craft, and art.

Her pieces are individually crafted, often without the use of thread, patterns or other tools found in traditional tailoring. Galya’s pieces have been accepted into the permanent collection of The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.”
