Ask Casa: Find These Kill Bill Pillows?

Hi Casa,
I've looked everywhere online for embroidered pillows like these from Kill Bill Vol. 2. Any ideas other than a Spring break trip to Mexico?

Thanks!

Hi Oliveye,

Those pillows look like crewel pillows. Crewel is a type of free embroidery that uses thick thread, usually wool, to embroider imagery on a fabric surface. Crewel work began in England, and spread to Kashmir and India shortly thereafter. The pillows from Kill Bill Vol. 2 look like they're embroidered pillowcases, and I had virtually no luck finding any pillowcases as gorgeous as those pictured. So, I thought I'd show you the next best alternative: throw pillows that can be used on your bed, alongside more traditional pillows.

The Mantadia Pillow ($128) has similar colors and florals as your pillows, but includes some avian life as well. It's a bit expensive, but definitely lovely.


A more economical alternative is the Crate and Barrel Natasha Pillow ($36.95). It uses rayon thread instead of wool, and is embroidered on a sturdy cotton pillow.

Another alternative is to try your hand at embroidering something similar. You can use embroidery markers and thread to trace a similar design, and then get to work re-creating the design to your specifications. Or, you could try an embroidery kit, such as Sublime Stitching Flower Power Kit.

I also rounded up some other embroidered pillows, to see if any struck your fancy. Good luck in your search!

Cheers,
Casa
