Brown and Turquoise Pillow with Filigree Caps
Our favorite color combination: brown and turquoise. . .they go together like peas an’ carrots! Add luxurious filigree overlay, toss in some sterling and turquoise conchos, and voila. . .every cowgirl’s dream!
This pillow is made from 100% full grain cowhide leather. The corner caps are made from floral embossed leather, which has been stained by hand and layered with color to create an antiqued effect. The leather is then hand carved to create a cutout that enhances the floral pattern inherent in the leather, and turquoise pigskin is the applied under it to make the pattern “pop.” The corner caps are trimmed in hand-rolled turquoise pigskin and a total of 44 hand-cast antiqued sterling silver conchos with turquoise stones. The back of the pillow and the fringe is brown suede cowhide leather. The backside of the pillow has overlapping panels for easy access to the fiber pillow insert, and are closed securely with two antiqued sterling silver conchos and deerskin lacing. A traditional hitched horsehair tassel from the Montana State Prison Hobby Store in Deer Lodge completes the picture, which is easily removable, if that is your preference. The overall dimensions of this pillow are 16″w X 16″h, plus 8″ of fringe on all four sides. Our signature brand is at the lower left corner on the back of the pillow.

It’s probably no surprise to you that we at Stargazer Mercantile have a deep love for all Western art forms. It’s sort of our “thang”! And we take pride in incorporating traditional Western craft into our products. One of my favorite of the traditional arts is horsehair hitching. That’s why I’ve decided to devote an entire blog post to the art of horsehair hitching.
