A hand-knit merino wool pillow, available in two colors
All-natural, superior-quality merino wool is hand-spun and hand-dyed, then expertly knit into this feather-filled pillow that reminds us of a cozy scarf made by our grandmothers. The even knit-and-purl pattern makes a uniform design that’s balanced by a slightly varying surface composed of rich, organic fibers.
Designed in Italy and exclusively produced in Brazil, Arcade Avec embraces the signature imperfections of an item that’s made by hand. Using only all-natural materials and ethical business practices, the company is conscious of preserving traditional craftsmanship techniques that utilize handmade tools for the production of their home accessories, while contributing to a fair trade market system. A group of artists in Italy design textiles that are a collection of their various viewpoints, and a women’s artisan collective in Brazil produces their designs with time-honored expertise and an unwavering attention detail. Each pillow is a story in and of itself. Available in Mare (Sea) and Polvere (Grey).
With a mutual love for Brazil and all things handcrafted, Ivan Baj and Paulo Haubert founded Arcade Avec, a design group based in Bolzano, Italy, that works exclusively with a women’s cooperative in Southern Brazil to produce one-of-a-kind textiles. Using traditional dyeing and hand-spinning techniques, and then hand-weaving or knitting each item, all of the designs have an organic, warm feel, while combining modern style with a timeless spirit of craftsmanship and luxury.
