Porcupine Throw Pillow
Hearth and Harrow

Textile designs from Hearth and Harrow are simple, natural and handmade from start to finish in Massachusetts. Each pillow begins as an original watercolor painting and is screen printed by hand using non-toxic water-based inks. As a company they design what is true to them - "Our paring down of modern clutter has allowed us to think about design that doesn't add to the noise of everyday life." This porcupine would be welcome in my house.
