Berkeley-based owner, maker, curator and designer Sabine Hermann brings the outdoors in with her handmade decorative pillows sold on Etsy under the shop and brand name, Plantillo. The 2-dimensional images are custom printed on cotton canvas and the sewn shapes give the pillows their 3-dimensional look. Hereâ€™s what the artisan says about her process:
â€œI came up with the idea for PLANTILLO while walking through my neighborhood and surrounding hills in Berkeley, CA. I love to find interesting objects on my path, and I can’t resist stuffing them into my pockets and taking photos. My ever-growing collection of leaves, bark, pods, flowers, and logs have inspired me to turn my found treasures into home dÃ©cor. It brings me happiness to both preserve nature and bring it into your home.â€
