The iridescent sheen and breathtaking fully hand-embroidered pattern on these pillow covers convey a sense of romance that elevates even the most minimalist décor. Tuck one on your bed or couch to create an alluring focal point, or pair with your favorite pillows from our silk range to build a plush haven for relaxing and socializing.
With roots in Persia and drawing influence from European, Chinese and Indian cultures, these artisan-made pillow covers with Parsi embroidery (also known as Gara embroidery) are steeped in rich history. Realistically pictorial and intricately embellished, Gara embroidered sarees were originally considered a Parsi family’s heirloom often worth more than the rest of the family wardrobe. Today they are becoming rare, collector’s items with the great legacy slowly fading with the dwindling Parsi community. This unique art form is being preserved by adapting it for contemporary living in pillow covers, scarves and bags while maintaining the exquisite craftsmanship.
Hand embroidered on 100% soft-textured handwoven silk, these one-of-a-kind pillow covers make for a timeless piece you will adore for years to come—or a wonderful gift to make a loved one feel special.
