Rosemary Hallgarten: Hand-embroidered pillows
San Francisco-based textile designer Rosemary Hallgarten has created a gorgeous collection of alpaca throw pillows with fellow artisans from Peru. All of their pieces feature abstracts of natural elements, including vines, twigs and tulips. Hallgarten also has a line of New Zealand wool handhooked pillows, as well as alpaca and silk throws, available through mail order and retailers. Additionally, she makes rugs to order for the trade.
Each product resonates with a sense of place and craftsmanship embued by the artisans who makes it.
