Etsy’s Plantillo Shop Creates Nature-Themed Pillow Designs

— July 18, 2014 — Art & Design
Etsy’s Plantillo Shop, known for its botanical pillow designs is aimed at “turning nature photography into home decor one plant at a time.”

The shop, founded by owner Sabine Herrmann features pinecone, branch and cabbage plant designs that ate captured in photo form and transformed onto cushion textiles. After photographing nature views on her bike rides through the San Francisco Bay Area, the designer was inspired to create these decor accents that range from flowers to fallen leaf elements.

“All of these pillow design photos are custom printed on a cotton canvas and then sewn to resemble the actual shape of each plant and leaf they represent.” Each of these pillows is priced at a $75 rate and is made-to-order by Plantillo Shop’s owner.
