Michaelian Home Throw Pillows

Women in the 19th century took advantage of the boom in textile mills and the abundance of wool yarn to decorate their homes by creating dramatic and stunning images on throw pillows. Then, the art of needlepoint was based on the adage from Proverbs that, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop.” Today, Needlepoint pillows are a beautiful expression of hand artistry, historical significance, and timeless beauty.
