Square Majestic African Giraffe Pillow

A majestic African Giraffe embroidered square pillow. (We also have a rectangular & triangular versions of this pillow.)

Not long ago, we made some African-themed custom pillows for one of our customers. This is a new Embroiderglyphs design that expands on that theme.

This is a very proud, majestic looking Giraffe.

The side panels and back of the pillow use a fabric with a giraffe pattern.

The original artwork that this Giraffe is based upon comes from a book called, “Dictionnaire Universel d′Histoire Naturelle,” by Charles D′Orbigny. Charles Henry Dessalines D′Orbigny (1806–1876) was a French botanist and geologist.

The entire work consisted of 288 engravings of flowers, birds, mammals, insects, fishes, and shells. Camelopardalis girafa was Plate 14. The work was considered one of the paramount natural history collections of that time featuring wonderfully illustrated natural history plates.

His book, “Dictionnaire Universel d′Histoire Naturelle,” was published between 1841 and 1849 and is now in the public domain.

The original plate of this giraffe was originally hand-colored. D′Orbigny used a variety of famous artists to help illustrate his book. The original artwork has a name on it that is, presumably, from the artist: Alfred Annedouche (1833–????)

This design has an Acacia tree on the left and some Palm trees on the right. There are a variety of grasses and plants in the foreground. Notice the three distant giraffes on the right. It is a very nice design.

This would look great in an eclectic, African or cabin decor. It would be perfect for a mancave! ;-)

The pillow size is approximately 16″ x 16″ x 4″. Inside the pillow is a new, soft, high quality pillow insert.

John researched and digitized the design and Beth did the embroidery. Beth uses great computerized embroidery and sewing machines for the bulk of the work, then hand sews the final side shut.

(We have another triangular pillow with this giraffe design. Each of the three corners on that pillow has beads and a tassel.)

Of course, we can put our designs on totes, sweatshirts and other embroidable items as well.

When we ship your pillows, we place them in an large plastic bag, and then in a new, high quality shipping box. Your new pillows will be well protected during shipping.
