Read The Fine Print

"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."
- William Shakespeare

Created by artist Mike Caplanis, these boldly illustrated portrait pillows pay homage to some of literature's greatest minds while providing a soft spot to prop your head and ponder your own contribution to the Western canon. Perhaps just as noteworthy as the figures adorning these pillows is its extraordinary fabric. Those who lay upon one of these downy pieces will be surprised to discover that its soft cloth covering and fluffy filling are made out of 100% recycled from post-consumer plastic bottles that have been transformed into a cotton-like material. Both soft and sturdy, these reinvented materials will last five times longer than cotton and can easily stand their share of tumbles in the washer without fraying or pilling.

Plus, these sustainable fibers are highly absorptive, giving Mike's distinctive, heat-transferred illustrations added depth, dimensionality, and character. Compared to conventional dyeing and printing techniques, this 100% eco-friendly process conserves a significant amount water and energy and does not release any harmful chemicals. Ignite the passions of any lit lover with these alluring pillows that serve as a wonderful reminder that greatness is attainable with just a touch of ingenuity and imagination. Materials made in the USA. Pillows made in North Carolina.
