Happy Fri-YAY ladies! I am so excited that it is the weekend. I got to sneak away to San Fransisco with the hubs last weekend for a little getaway for one of his dental conventions. It was so much fun and so good to get away, but I swear it has made this week DRAG by. Today I am sharing with you guys a round-up of some of my favorite Boho pillows. Pillows are such a great way to test out a style if you are not sure about it or incorporate a favorite style into a space without having to go all-in. We source a lot a lot a lot of pillows for clients and our favorite sources for boho style pillows are Danielle Oakey Shop, Boho Pillow, Mae Woven, Pure Home LA, and our sweet friends Loom Goods. I am going to share my 12 current favorite Boho pillows below with you guys. Remember that a lot of the shops we use are Etsy shops, so if a link says something is sold out always try their shop link because they will typically list multiples or you will be able to find something else you link just as much…or maybe more.
I also wanted to provide you guys with a really quick boho fabric glossary because I know it can be so confusing to see terms thrown around and have absolutely no idea what they mean. Consider this my boho pillow PSA.

BATIK: The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot. To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colorful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for use.
