Style: Wabisabi Green Pillows Provide Easy Comfort

Taking in the last art fair of summer, I once again walked amongst the endless rows of homemade soaps, lawn art, and kettle corn booths. The sweaty masses, redundant offerings, and oil-laden air don’t deter me from showing up. I continue to return for the same reason everyone does—endlessly searching for the best-in-show artisan. The honor this visit was delivered to artist Jolee Pink’s Wabisabi Green—a line of throw pillows that brilliantly combine the fashionable, the affordable, and the eco-friendly.

Wabisabi, the Japanese idea of finding natural beauty in all things including the imperfect and incomplete, is the inspiration behind each design. Her three collections, Shore, Zen, and Leaf, showcase the Wabisabi concept beautifully. Pink’s pillows display a quiet perspective, exhibiting simple, natural patterns. Each piece is hand-printed on organic cotton using rich and deep, non-toxic inks. Designs include such favorites as papyrus, sea fan, and cherry blossom. For only $45 per cover (and an additional $20-$25 for organic kapok fiber or ecofiber inserts), these little beauties can easily transform any room in your home. Like discovering the finest artisan at a summer fair, Wabisabi Green pillows can transform the same ol’, same ol’ into a thing of beauty. Details: www.wabisabigreen.com

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts.
