Where In The World

From the spot you met your sweetie to the place you said "I do," this worldly pillow commemorates the locales you love. Heather Shaw created this plush, interactive canvas for her map-loving son so he could pinpoint where he was and where he'd been. A threaded needle and two hand-printed buttons allow you to sew a heart and star over your favorite or most meaningful corners of the world. Handmade in Canada.

Inspired by the concept of pillows as blank canvases, art history buff and textiles expert Heather Shaw set off on a crafty journey around 1995--and continues exploring her zeal for art and design with her whimsical line of embroidered pillows.

Inspired by natural materials, simple lines and soothing palettes, Shaw first explored stenciling and screen-printing motifs onto organic fabrics, finishing each piece with striking silhouettes of original embroidery. Since becoming a mother and an aunt, Shaw has integrated playful motifs and iconic childhood images into her work.

Shaw graduated with a degree in Textiles from art school in her native region of eastern Canada, where she currently handcrafts every whimsical pillow with care from the creative bunker of her home studio in Toronto.

I have the heart on my home and the star where I'd like to travel next! Love looking at it and thinking about what's to come and the heart on my home is comforting. Would rather have a pin for the buttons so I don't have to sew it everytime I want to move it.

Cute, smaller than expected.

Cute pillow. Fun, pixelated map. Shame on me for not reading the dimensions beforehand, as it was much smaller than I expected. I wouldn't have paid as much given the size, but that's my fault. Cute and looks like good quality. Comes with two buttons - the heart pictured, and a star. Not sure what to do with the star.

I bought one for me and one for my best friend. We travel a lot, so I bought small buttons from a craft store to mark our travels. I wish this pillow was a bit larger, so it could have a more detailed map on it. But it's a great accent pillow, and will be perfect for napping. If you made a similar pillow with an enlarged US map, I'd buy it! Packaging was secure, and shipping was very fast.

We purchased this on two separate occasions for female colleages who were retiring from an airline career. We include a message "where ever you go in this world, remember we love you." and sewed the heart button on to our location. I imagine they will use it in their home or office as decoration. I like the heaviery fabrice and LOVE the pre-threaded needle include. Made it easy to attach the button.

We purchased this on two separate occasions for colleagues who were retiring from an airline career. Both were women and we thought this would be a reminder that "where ever you go in this world, remember we love you" and we used the heart button included to attach to our location. LOVE that the needle is already threaded and ready to go to sew to the special spot. I like the heavy fabric and imagine they will use the item to decorate a chair in their home or home office.
