I Used To Be A Plastic Water Bottle

Posted on: May 2, 2009

Alexandra Ferguson‘s felt pillows are made from 100% post consumer recycled felt, recycled from plastic water bottles.   It takes about four bottles to make the felt used for one pillow – so for each one made, that’s four less bottles going to landfill.

Alexandra made her very first pillows as gifts, and if it hadn’t been for the prompting of a friends’ sister, they would have been her last – but she put them on sale and has been producing them ever since.

Each pillow is made by hand at a studio in Westchester County, New York, so each is one of a kind.
