I wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to make a pillow out of denim jeans. When I think of denim, I imagine stiff, durable, or rugged textures so there was no way to know how comfortable and plush this pillow turned out. The chevron pattern is an immediate draw, making the pillow easy on the eyes. I especially love the way the mismatched denim textures leave a gentle, alluring impression to the touch. The build video for this project can be seen above and a brief overview of this project can be found below.
Denim is such an underrated material, typically used as pants or a jacket (shoutout to the Canadian tuxedo). I’m obsessed with putting denim where it doesn’t belong (see also: denim trenchcoat) so today I present a peek at a denim throw pillow. I just finished production and filming behind-the-scenes footage, so a “making of” video and a detailed post will be available once I finish editing.
This is certainly the first of many more upcycled pillows/projects and I’m hoping to make future products available for purchase. What do you think? Would you buy an upcycled denim pillow?
