Parts of Pillows

11

    Insert

    • This is a pillow insert.

      The pillow insert is placed inside a pillow cover and fills out the pillow cover. Inserts are made of feathers, down, synthetic and recycled materials.

    Pillow Cover

    • The pillow cover consists of two faces: a front face and back face. When the pillow is placed in a room, the front face should always face outward.

    Opening/Closure

    • A pillow cover must have an opening and closure for the insert to be put in and removed. It may close via a zipper, buttons or Velcro.

    Welt

    • This is a pillow welt.

      A welt is cord wrapped tightly with fabric; it is sewn onto the edges of a pillow cover. A self-welt is made of the same fabric as the face and back. A contrast welt is made in a different fabric from the face and back.

    Trim

    • Trim is any additional decoration applied to the edge of a pillow, such as fringe, cording or beads.

    Flange

    • A flange is a piece of fabric folded in half and sewn to the edge of a pillow.
