Plantillo

Succulent Pillow

$75

Expand product description

These realistic-looking succulents are, in fact, decorative pillows handmade from cotton canvas and linen by Sabine Herrmann. The Berkeley, California-based artist takes her own photographs of the diverse vegetation around the neighborhood, which are then printed onto fabric. From blue agave succulents to pinecones, Hermann’s Plantillo pillows are almost like an optical illusion; the best thing is that they require zero maintenance.
