The Write Stuff

Remember your first lessons in the long-lost art of cursive writing? Those loops and swirls seemed to make every word seem more exciting. Whether you've held onto those skills or look back with fondness on days of legibility, this hand-printed decor piece earns an A+ in nostalgic charm. Designer Rebecca Rodriguez uses screen printing on heavy cotton twill to replicate the blue and red lines of a child's writing paper, and the message "Settle Down" is both perhaps the most common phrase on a teacher's lips and a pretty good mantra for life as a grown up. Handmade in Somerset, New Jersey.

Rebecca Rodriguez's background reflects her love of both academics and artistry. She has a B.A. from Yale University in American Art & Material Culture, and a Master’s Degree in American Material Culture (think Antiques Roadshow). She started a small business creating mindful and playful homewares infused with school-days nostalgia. She firmly believes that everyday life can be made better by creating playful and beautiful spaces in which to live and work.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Settle Down Penmanship Pillow:

    We bought this due to an inside joke with a foreign exchange student. We always say 'Settle down' to her when she gets all excited about different things. When we saw the pillow we knew she would laugh and love it. We were right. Really nice quality product too. Just a little small. Truly an accent pillow.
