BRUISER THE PUP
BRUISER THE PUP
imperfectly drawn and designed by erin flett
DESIGN BRIEF: This is BRUISER. A dear family friend had a sweet old dog named BRUISER that inspired this print. He was a dear dog that my kiddos adored and could not resist making him my newest icon. The image of BRUISER was also inspired by a shoe box full of Valentines I picked up at a local junk shop (design credit also goes to my mom whom I emailed at least 100 times asking if he looked right). e
EVERY STEP HAS A STORY:
Every pillow is hand screened in our studio in Gorham, Maine, onto one of two choices of FABRICS WOVEN IN THE USA: Natural colored 100% cotton BARK CLOTH or an OATMEAL RECYCLED POLY COTTON TWILL. The recycled poly cotton fabric utilizes fibers and yarns, largely made from clear plastic water bottles that have been recovered from our environment after at least one consumer use cycle. All yarns are 100% post-consumer recycled polyester and are SCS certified.
All prints are hand screened with eco-minded water based inks with a super soft hand. Every pillow is generously stuffed with a hypo-allergenic faux down insert made for us by a family owned pillow company in Florida.
Each pillow is one-of-a-kind, stitched together, pressed, and mindfully packaged with a funky cool letter-pressed hang tag printed with a Chandler & Price printing press by Mark Dunstan, Mainer, charming story teller, and a lover of metal type and all things less manufactured, on recycled chip board. Each tag tells our story, and the back can be used as a customizable gift tag.
