FF: The Hi from Chicago Pillow from Earth Cadets

ff1I love the hand crafted silk screen prints of Earth Cadets, like the Hi from Chicago pillow: “Show your Chicago pride with this hand printed, organic pillow made right here in the windy city.”

About Earth Cadets: “It started with a love for t-shirts and making my own via puffy paints and iron-on transfers. I mean who doesn’t love a white sweat suit with chicks and bunnies outlined in pastel purple? Many, many years later, it morphed into my moving to Chicago, finding local places that teach screen printing, taking several beginners classes and then going out on my own to build out a studio in my basement. From that, Earth Cadets was born. A company committed to creating unique and hand printed home goods, accessories and clothing while keeping a commitment to maintain and respect our environment.”
