Basil Green Palm Tree Pillow

Retail, this pillow would sell for double. It is a great buy at $38.

This is a one-of-a-kind custom accent pillow. The design and green & ivory colors would be perfect in many decors. It is a type of palm tree called Phoenix Rupicola.

The original that this design is based upon comes from the publication L′Illustration Horticole. I believe the publisher was J. Linden, and the botanist was Dannemaeker, but I am not sure at this time.

This was a yearly French botanist publication &mdash published from 1854 to 1896.

The inspiration came from a plate from volume 25 of this publication (1878). You can download your own copy of this artwork from Biodiversity Heritage Liibrary at:

Rupicola is latin for, inhabitant of rocks. It is a cliff date palm found in places like India and Bhutan. It grows up to a height of about 8 meters, or 26 feet. It is a beautiful palm. Some companies are integrating its DNA into other palms to create beautiful palms for landscaping.

John researched the design, and Beth created the pillow design. Beth uses great computerized embroidery and sewing machines for the bulk of the work, then hand sews the final side shut. The fabric has a soft, smooth feel.

The pillow size is approximately 12″ x 16″ x 4″. As always, inside there is a new, soft pillow insert.

The side panels and back are made with a beautiful green fabric. The center panel in the front is an ivory fabric. They are very nice, natural looking fabrics.

This accent pillow would be great for someone:

  • that loves palms in general,
  • has palms in their landscaping,
  • is creating a Caribbean or Island decor,
  • for someone that has a british, oriental or an eclectic decor,
  • or for someone that just likes little nautical touches — like beautiful palm.

On request, we could put this design other items, such as purses, totes, pillows or sweatshirts.
