These stones by Ronel Jordaan seem to be quite a bit larger than the Felt Rocks by Molo, and they would be excellent cushions to add here and there around a living space. (I’ve listed links for two different retailers; whoever had the lower price got the link for that particular item.)
Socially conscious as well as gifted, Jordaan has set up a women’s workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg-where her personally trained artisans transform interlocking fibers, made from 100% merino wool, into these freeform oversized “stone” floor cushions…Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back. Hand washable in cold water.

I heart this embroidered pillow- for the script on front, yes, and also for the embroidery on the back (click on link to see detail).
Our over-sized Fair & Square pillow is an embroidered cushion in Chinese hemp. The cushion’s deco-design was developed by FairTrade Designers with inspiration from traditional ethnic chinese embroidery and Danish embroidered tradition with the ‘Home Sweet Home’ cushion, which carries a message that signals personal values.
Available in collegiate lettering or script.
The back side of each pillow is brightly embroidered with the name & hand print of the person who made it.
24″ x 24″

The pillow on the left reminded me of the Google News Cushion, but the font and words are completely different, so fair play…all that being said, it’s a heck of a lot more affordable.

They start with fabric made from some of the most sustainable materials available such as hemp, organic cotton, and recycled wool. K studio designs are generated in house and are then embroidered, assembled, packaged, and shipped by their skilled team.

Remember the fun of those Hypercolor T-shirts? Now you can relive that same experience with a pillow.
These highly innovative pillows change colors when touched (black to green / blue, red to violet, burgundy to purple). Simply place your hand or body on the pillows and your natural heat will cause the thermosensitive layers to react. Only the touched area will temporarily change color; the original look will reappear within one minute. The pillows are available in two textures–Snakeskin (rigid) and Lambskin (smooth).
Please note that this product can only be used indoors.
Made of crystallized thermosensitive snakeskin or lambskin layers, cotton / poly stuffing
Medium: 17″x17″, $150.00
Large: 25″x25″, $200.00
