These aren't your grandmother's throw pillows. No, these cushions combine an all-grown-up, contemporary style with a wild burst of youthful enthusiasm. That infusion of energy comes from the bold stripes of reclaimed T-shirts, with a one-of-a-kind combination of colors and patterns in either a warm or cool palette. Angular lines of stitching crisscross the vibrant front panel, while the back offers a contrasting panel of conservative black cotton. Created by Kathy Carrier and her talented team of artisans, the reclaimed nature of these materials means that each will have unique variations. Handmade in Indiana.

When Kathy's father-in-law, Byron Carrier, passed away in 2009, his wife, Mary Carrier, spent 5 months making 32 bears out his clothing which were then presented to their children and grandchildren as a tribute to his legacy. Kathy, a successful entrepreneur and owner of a 250-person consulting firm understood the opportunity, felt the calling, and moved forward.

Today, Kathy's company designs and produces custom textile items including quilts, pillows, scarves, stuffed animals, and various home accessories and accents utilizing an individual's repurposed clothing and photographs.
