Pillow Talk

My love for saris, pillows and sumptuous textiles dates back as long as I can remember, but really took root in my twenties.

Spending those years bouncing between apartments in the west village, east village and upper east side my tiny abodes became my escape from the hustle and bustle. Therefore, I wanted everything to be beautiful and cozy as an antidote to the abrasive and gritty city.

I would source saris even then and tack them up as my thrifty version of upholstered walls or moveable murals, pile all my pillows, spark my favorite candle and listen to records. It was my version of utopia.

In between internships, grad school and jobs it was my chance to channel the ladies of leisure of days gone by in all their tactile glory. A way to bring the white box rentals to life and make them feel my own.

My favorite memories are days spent with friends ping ponging between delicious cocktails and art museums or galleries. Taking in all the new or iconic works, filling our heads with ideas and talking about our dreams.

The pillows of Eye of Curiosity are a physical manifestation of those beautiful days and fanciful dreams. All created in extremely limited number series each is a window into another world.
