The Baptiste Viry Little Shoes Throw Pillow is not for the lonely soul. The young Paris-based designer Baptiste Viry finds very unexpected concepts to base his collection on. In this case, he created these throw pillows entirely out of men's shoes.

The process to make the cushions involves hand sewing the leather shoes onto a suede backing and then finishing it off with hot wax buff to standardize the surface. You could definitely say the process is a great feat. The cushions capitalize on the leather of the shoes and leave the pillows with an amazing effect.

Each pillow is completely customized to differentiate itself from the others. And, since they are each handmade and signed by Baptiste Viry, it is no wonder that a single cushion costs approximately $1,250 US.
