Our embroidered pillows are part of Costa Verde home textile collection. Costa Verde is the circuit of beaches in Lima, a place that I miss a lot now that I live in Denmark. My family lives very close to the cliff that overlooks to the Pacific Ocean. The smell and sound of the sea always remind me where I come from.
