This celadon striped pillow cover is 100 percent linen, which makes for an upscale seaside look at a fraction of the usual cost. The striped detail is hand-embroidered, to boot. Each of these handcrafted pillows feature designs based off of traditional Congo garb. They're created from natural dyed raffia to add an authentic, colorful touch to your sofa.
And that sofa—it looks amazing. The unexpected color has a nice rosiness to it; we see more cool- and gray-toned browns these days so it´s a nice change.

Before you start, remove your jewelry, especially rings. I almost lost mine in the process! To give yourself room to work on the seat backs, remove all the seat cushions and set them in a clean workspace. Grab a large amount of Poly-fil and begin to shove it up inside the cushion, making sure to position it behind any foam or pillow that may already be in the cushion.
