Nothing instantly transports me to the sea like hearing the call of gulls. This decorative pillow case features illustrated seagulls soaring the skies. Bright aqua turquoise will light up any living room. The fabric is breezy and soft with a wide weave blend of cotton and linen, which adds a touch of the natural elements while being durable and washable. This artwork is from the collection Short Sands by Skye McNeill. Pair the Flying Gulls case with the Dune Grass and Tide Pools pillow cases for a dynamic set. Measures 22” square. We recommend using a 24” insert (not included) for a firmer fit.

COVER ONLY (no insert included)!
Made from a woven blend of natural fibers (68% cotton and 32% linen) with a larger weave texture. Featuring a light sheen and soft touch. These pillow covers are so cozy!
Digitally printed with permanent, non-fading reactive dyes, which are low water use and low waste, for a minimal environmental impact. Digital printing can have some anomalies when used over white fabric and occasionally a loose thread or slub may move after printing, leaving a small white mark. To us these minor imperfections are worth it for the low ecological footprint of digital reactive printing!
As part of the fabric finishing process, the fabrics are washed and shrunk. That means your pillowcase arrives ready to stuff and love! Experience vibrant artwork and the comfortable feel of natural fibers.
Our cotton/linen fabric is made in a factory with OEKO-TEX certification for standardized and safe working conditions. Each item is printed and sewn for us by our manufacturer in Canada.
More about reactive printing from our manufacturer:
“Reactive printing on-demand is a low waste process. Since every meter we print is for a specific customer, we never have overstock or deadstock. Fabrics that we pretreat incorrectly can simply be washed and retreated. Our washing machinery recirculates water to minimize water usage. The steamer uses less than 40 liters of water most production days. We use natural gas heaters to power the printer heater and practice widely accepted energy saving techniques daily within our facility including recycling all cardboard, papers, and plastics.”
Hand wash or gentle machine wash in cold water. Do not bleach. Line dry only.
If it isn’t clear from our shop theme, we love the ocean and waterways of the world! We believe in a thoughtful, slow lifestyle, where we take time to be in nature and appreciate what we have around us. We want to minimize our impact on the earth and be conscious of what we are adding to it. To this end we choose to create our product in very small runs, or to make each piece to order. This can mean a longer turnaround time from when you place your order to when you receive it so that we can print, or print and sew, your piece. We use a combination of hand-made and outsourced manufacturing. Some pieces are one-of-a-kind and made by us, and others are designed by us but printed and sewn by a small team whose values align with ours. Some of the printing techniques we’ve chosen for environmental reasons can take longer than they might if we used more water-heavy printing methods, but we think it’s worth it. In the era of same-day deliveries and cheaply manufactured fast fashion and products, we hope you’ll be patient with us, knowing you can feel better about your purchase. Thanks for your support!
