California

Carmel and Terrell fell in love and discovered they shared anthropological backgrounds and a thirst for travel. They also had a joy & deep appreciation for art, design and craftsmanship. Today you'll find the Swans living in picturesque Petaluma, a quiet Northern California town nestled amongst dairy farms and rolling hills. Of course, they continue to travel to all parts of the world - you could say it is their business, and you would be right.

The pillow is very well constructed, the embroidery excellent. It is a fun piece, albeit a costly piece of fun, and it is perfect for our Wisconsin lake home. I also bought the state dish towels and they are great, too. I will give them as souvenirs to good friends who visit us.

      I bought this for my daughter who moved to Colorado a year ago. I loved the chicago pillow I had received as a gift, and I knew she would like hers. Big success. Embroidery is well done with major highlights.

                We recently moved and bought a rug for our living room. We bought it online and it came in much brighter than expected. These pillows match it perfectly. I purchased the states that my husband and I grew up in. They're very fun and sentimental. The only con is that they are expensive.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Hand Embroidered State Pillows:

                  I bought this pillow in the state of South Carolina pattern. A co-worker is being relocated to Texas and I wanted to get him something unique to remember South Carolina. This pillow is very unique and well made. This will be my standard gift to welcome new employees and those employees that relocate to other divisions of my company. I am the executive assistant to the CEO and I am always looking for unique gifts, this one did not disappoint. Thank you!

                  Delivered well packaged and on time.
