THE KISMET – A unique pillow with a unique story.

THE STORY 
My Kismet pillows cases come in three different colours: Sapphire, Ochre and Peach. They have a unique pattern, which I have found in traditional Ottoman folklore and tribal handcrafts. However, I have modernized it and turned it into my own. The pattern is the first one I made and for that reason I have called it Kismet:

The meaning of the old Arabic, Persian, Turkish word kismet is 'destiny'. As a little girl I could listen for hours while my father told stories of how it was to grow up in old Istanbul. His voice painted images in my mind, where every sound, smell and flavor of the bustling city became real. The stories inspired me to make drawings and patterns vibrant with life, colors and shapes.

I guess it was during those moments that I decided to work with art and design in the future. And here I am today. It was my destiny – my kismet.

THE INSPIRATION 
So, if you buy an Kismet pillow case from me, you get a small part of an interesting story along with it. If you want to read more about other parts of my family story – which inspires me in my designs – then please check out my personal website.

HANDMADE IN NORWAY
The pillow cases are all handmade by me in my own home in Norway, just outside the capital city of Oslo. I take great pride in carefully sewing and assembling each pillow case with care and love, so that you hopefully will be satisfied and happy to receive them. They are an all Scandinavian product; designed and assembled in Norway, printed in Sweden with labels from Denmark – inspired by the Orient. 

SIZE, SHAPE AND MATERIAL
The pillow cases measure 18 x 18 inches (47 x 47 cm), all with double stitching to ensure a high quality product.

Hidden zipper is standard with all my pillow cases, as well as a seam-free top. All pillow cases have print on both sides. See pictures for details.
