Pre-Stitched Elizabeth Bradley Pillows

Elizabeth Bradley is introducing a line of pre-stitched floral pillows at North Carolina's High Point Furniture Market under the Elizabeth Bradley Home name. These sixteen inch square pillows are $580 each, are stitched in India with wool, and each take about 120 hours to stitch plus extra time to make the cording and assemble them.

For comparison purposes, unstitched sixteen inch floral pillow kits are sold by Elizabeth Bradley for roughly $230. If I remember correctly, these kits are on 10 count stamped canvas with all the wool included.

    1. LOL Well, at least it isn't a $20 pre-stitched Christmas stocking from Walmart. But $600 for a pillow done in wool is quite pricey in my opinion. Hopefully that's because they are paying a decent wage to have them made.
