Mountain Grown Delights

Wake up those sleepy throw pillows with these invigorating cushion covers. Used coffee sack material is transformed from has-beans to the hot new thing, full of texture, color and intricate details. The ribbon-style cover features alternating stripes of loose-woven sacking and green Guatemalan cotton, stitched to create a three-dimensional effect and framed with striking, chartreuse piping. The checkered cover is made from green cotton interlacing with a woven plastic fabric, still bearing colorful printed fragments of its former life. The cushion covers are crafted by Mayan artisans in South America, which helps them to earn a sustainable income while preserving their cultural heritage. Handmade in Guatemala.

Sold individually.

We think these cushion covers are a great way to energize your old pillows. The fact that they're handmade and upcycled is a perk, too. Would you proclaim you love of coffee (or your love of fashionable home decor) with these designs?

You want to add more natural materials to your homes here we go. They are unique in their design. I want items that you just can't find any where.

People use the pillows in my house. These look uncomfortable and not very sturdy

Thanks for voting, Linda. These are cushion covers, so you can put either firm or soft pillows in them depending on how sturdy or fluffy you want them.

I don't want to sleep, especially in the warmer weather, in something plasticized. Could you imagine the sweat it would create?

Tara

Left one is definitely better than the right. Can they do brighter colors?
