I recently met the Toronto designer Mehker, who carries beautifully handmade pillows out of vintage silk scarves. She collects the scarves herself and offers a wide variety of patterns ranging from bold geometric prints, to colourful mod designs, to soft and delicate pastels. I fell in love with this floral print and had to pick up the set. Since then, I've had nothing but fun moving them around my apartment and testing them out on different surfaces. Their pretty, water colour-like design is the perfect balance against some of my rougher vintage furniture yet cheerfully compliments many of my textiles. Each set of pillows is unique and add character to any space. They're a must AND they're local! You can find more information on Mehker here and can stay updated through twitter.
