We love the duel colors in this hand block printed pillow. The ogee design is hand-stamped with a medium gray and a sunny yellow ochre onto white linen to create the sunniest of patterns. For printed pillow cases and more, visit Etsy.com/shop/giardino?auto=format.

A light and breezy tote bag is just the accessory to get you through the warmer months ahead. The handmade linen tote is fully lined and has a large zippered pocket. We love the use of water based inks and its lived-in patina. To see more chic totes, visit Etsy.com/shop/JaneForrester?auto=format.
