Kan-Shie Belgian Linen Pillow

  • About Kan-Shie, the pattern Bold in scale. Ancient Chinese pottery, through a new and playful lens.

    Kan-Shie simultaneously draws from Chinese enameled porcelain and evokes the natural imagery and simple forms of the American Arts and Crafts movement. Bold, elegant and floral, the design seamlessly interweaves graphic elements and multi-hued botanicals. With its deep negative space receding behind playfully colored elements, there’s an air of a palace garden – one composed of flowers at once both familiar and fantastical.

    About Kan-Shie, the pillow All of the pillows in our Belgian Linen collection are made to order in Los Angeles, California. The fabrics are printed in small batches by hand by our partners at a family-owned facility on the finest (and softest) Belgian Linen, and your pillows will be cut and sewn to order just a mile down the road from there by another family-owned workshop. We've been working with both of these partners for over a decade because they're simply the best at what they do.

about KAN-SHIE: chinoiserie chic

This circa-1970s wallpaper sample book from our Designers Series collection showcased a vignette that was, well, -rich- with color and pattern.

In the process of re-building the artwork to re-create the screens for Kan-Shie, though, we realized we were missing a few key sections of the pattern. A magnifying glass on this image -and some crafty extrapolation - came to our rescue, and Kan-Shie was re-born.
