This isn’t just an eye pillow, it’s a piece of history...
The very fabric that makes this sumptuous eye pillow is over 300 years old! Handwoven, hand- hemmed, naturally bleached and finished by a French household in the 1800s.
Up until the industrial revolution it was required that every French household grew their own flax to weave their own linens. You may be thinking how do I know that it is that old and not something more modern... well back at this time, the looms they used to weave the linen only stretched to one metre, and this piece was two metres wide with a hand stitched centre seam; meaning that it was created before the larger travelling looms existed.
To say that this piece of fabric has been on an adventure would be a severe understatement and to honour this I have kept as many as the original features as possible. The original hems, seams and any little nicks hold so much history and so I have fixed/secured them created a feature out of them on your eye pillow to capture the story they tell.

This fabric is 300 years old so is more susceptible to wear and tear, it has also been hand dyed with plants so the colours are more likely to fade over time. Please use ph neutral soaps and wash on a very gentle spin cycle and a cool setting - or handwash.
