I got the idea for Plantillo after taking a photo of an agave plant in my neighborhood. Looking at the photo on my computer screen, I was amazed by the painterly quality of the image. I wanted to display it in my home, but not in a frame. After some thought, I decided to print the image on fabric and bring it to life with my sewing machine. It looked so amazing – I knew right away that I would sew it into a plant-shaped pillow…a Plantillo!

hen I go on walks and bike rides, I make sure to bring my camera so I can capture some of the beautiful images I see along the way. I’m not looking for a perfect flower when I take a photo, because to me, a wilted leaf is part of the natural cycle and can have the most gorgeous hues. I believe imperfection adds character to an object.
