Lavender Kušinčići Dišeći (3-Pack)
Kušinčići Dišeći, which is the local Čakavski dialect for Small Fragrant PIllows, are filled with aromatic lavender fresh from the garden of the artist. These tiny pillows have designs of different ivy leaves cross-stiched on one side, and are hand-sewn in the ancient hilltop town of Kastav (Istria-Kvarner). Ivy is a symbol of Kastav, because the remains of the medieval walls and defense towers are now covered with ivy “as a silent witness to passing time.” The designs on these pillows were taken from actual leaves which the artisan collected from the walls of Kastav.
The wellness benefits of lavender are well-known, and Croatian lavender is some of the best in the world. Leave kušinčići on your guests’ pillows for a gracious welcome that will help them sleep soundly. Add a colorful ribbon for a fragrant, one-of-a-kind gift topper. Or tuck one inside each closet or drawer to safely repel insects and moths, while making clothes smell naturally fresh.
Comes in a 3-pack; each pack contains 1 of each design and fabric color (white, off-white and yellow).
Size: Each square is approx. 8-9 cm to a side.
Material: 100% Cotton.
Cleaning instructions: Spot clean the surface only, do not submerge (or you may lose some of the natural lavender scent).
Handmade in Kastav.
