A pillow is just a pillow
unless it's a piece of art.
We've always believed that a home should only be filled with items you love and that each piece should have a story or memory. Whether it's a small vase your grandmother gave you, a souvenir from a special trip, or a piece of art or handmade item that simply spoke to you- everything should reflect your individual style, but most importantly, make you feel at home. The pillows and accessories you will find at Yellow Bird Textile Co. will add a unique, understated elegance and sweetness to your space. From traditional to bohemian- our handmade, one of a kind pillows can blend in with many different styles. Each pillow is a piece of handwoven art and will be a conversation piece in your home for years to come.
Each of our items are handwoven and handmade in Edmonds, Washington (just north of Seattle). Every pillow is one of a kind and made with extreme care. We create our pillows using high quality yarns and fabrics. Most of the yarns are natural fibers such as linen and wool but there are a few blends that we occasionally use as an accent in the designs. Our first collection of pillows include a hypoallergenic faux down pillow insert but we are transitioning to removeable pillow covers to provide our customers with more flexibility (and cheaper shipping options!). Product listings will indicate if the pillow insert is included but please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
Behind the Design
Weaver & Textile Designer
Hello there my lovely new friends! My name is Savannah and I'm so excited you've stopped by to visit my little corner of the textile world. I've always felt drawn to art and design but after a chance visit to a yarn shop in Christchurch, New Zealand, my heart was pulled into the world of fiber and textile art.
After graduating with a BFA in Textile Design from the University of Kansas, I landed my first job in the textile industry as the Production Assistant at a high end fashion boutique in Kansas City, where they create beautiful pieces of clothing out of vintage kimono. After moving to Seattle in 2008, I worked at a fabric and furnishings showroom for a number of years, assisting interior designers select from some of the most amazing fabrics I had ever seen. Fast forward to today, I’m writing my own story and leaving my imprint on this design world I’ve been weaving my way through for so many years.
When I'm not working in the studio, you can find me with a good cup of coffee, baking cookies, and enjoying family time with my architect husband, Erik, and our sweet daughter, Emory.
