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. Here’s what the artisan says about her process:
“I 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 décor. It brings me happiness to both preserve nature and bring it into your home.”
