Recently our team completed a series of pillows from hoodies that were damaged in production, rendering them completely unusable as the garment they were produced to be. We save these dyed garments to repurpose them so the materials are not put to waste. These hoodies were collected over the course of eight years and now exist as a series of unique pillow sets. The first series that incorporated reclaimed materials were the Tectonic Dress and No Flag from Fall 2012. The second in this series entitled Reclaimed Pillow are groupings of patchwork pillows assembled by our team of creative’s. Each patchwork face is one of a kind, hand placed and entirely assembled at Prairie Underground’s workshop. The patchwork face is entirely lined and the pillow is backed with a matching cotton duck.
