Tough Love

You don't have to have your heart tattooed on your sleeve to show your ride-or-die devotion. Inspired by the similarities between needle felting and tattooing, artist and industrial designer Deborah Shavlik creates this tough and tender pillow using upcycled fabrics and natural wool fibers.

Personalize the heart banner with an anniversary date of up to seven characters or up to four initials for you and your sweetie. Highlighted by the bleeding lines indicative of a well-worn tatt, this sensitive biker-worthy pillow sends a permanent message of love without the trip to the tattoo parlor. Handmade in Brooklyn.

Artist and industrial designer Deborah Shavlik creates her line of home furnishings and accessories in Brooklyn, NY. Incorporating upcycled fabrics and natural wool fibers, the pieces are made by hand using a combination of needle and wet felting processes. Since needle felting is similar to tattooing, it inspired this classic flash tattoo heart and banner design.

After working nearly 12 years as a professional industrial designer, which included travel to overseas factories, starting a high quality hand-crafted line made in the USA felt important to Deborah. Having worked with numerous mediums over the years, included woodworking, glass blowing, and painting, she continues to explore textiles and play with new mediums.

About Me Midrange Shopper


I received the pillow today, which we bought as a wedding gift. The description in the catalog made it sound like a really quality unique gift and would justify paying $135.00 for. The overall quality does not justify the price. It does not appear to be hand made, it is tiny, and the custom lettering is sub par. Custom Orders cannot be sent back, which generally, I understand, however, when quality is an issue, I believe a refund should be honored. Therefore be ware before purchasing. I had several people look at the pillow before I called- they all agreed. I contacted the company and explained this and the best they could do was a credit. Just trying to help a potential buyer avoid disappointment.
