Products We Love: Vintage Scarf Pillows

I recently discovered these beautiful pillows made from vintage scarfs. So I reached out to the designer, Katie Lindsay Corr, to learn more about them.

“I hand make them from silk vintage scarves that I have collected from all parts of the country and abroad. At this point, I have hundreds of designs, with some by big name designers including YSL, Givenchy, Gernreich, Balmain, Lanvin, Patou, Ricci, Dior, and Vera just to name a few. By using vintage pieces that are at least 20 years old you can be assured that each pillow will be made from a rare scarf and that it will be one of a kind.

“Once I began to notice the interesting and beautiful designs in scarves, it seemed a shame that they were shut away in drawers. By making them into pillows, they are enjoyed again, in a new way. I use silk and silk blend scarves that are in excellent condition. First, they are examined for holes and then they are washed or cleaned. Then each scarf is lined with interfacing and muslin to give it strength and finished with a simple silk envelope back made usually made from taffeta or dupioni. The final result is a custom made smooth silky pillow.”

You can find these vintage scarf pillows by Lindsay Corr on “One Kings Lane” under the “Vintage and Market Finds” section. She also has a shop on Etsy and a pillow collection in Spruce Home and Garden in Bronxville. She is also always ready to make pillows to suit her customers needs.
