Custom Pillows: Custom Decor as Keepsakes

Looking for custom pillows? I have extensive experience in designing an array of custom decor, including pillows. Pictured below are custom pillows I recently created for customers. The first pair is made from the fur of an old coat. The second set is made from a leather jacket (also pictured). Please feel free to contact me to discuss custom pillows or custom decor for your home.

Custom Pillows made from Sentimental Fabric, Furs & More

When I receive orders for custom decor, customers usually send me materials with special meaning and significance to them. I’ll receive a beloved mother’s old fur coat; a dear sister’s leather jacket; a late husband’s neckties. I take these nostalgic fabrics and furs and transform them into custom pillows, custom blankets, memory bears, and more. Not only do customers come away with beautiful and unique custom decor, they also have keepsakes in honor and memory of loved ones.

Custom Pillows from Old Fur Coat

If you’re wondering what to do with a loved one’s clothing (or maybe an old coat you no longer need or wear), ordering a custom keepsake can be a wonderful solution. At ReMinkie, we are in the business of memories — honoring and remembering those we love and times past. We are ready to create custom keepsakes from the old coat wasting away in your closet or the neckties your father, husband or son no longer wear.

If you have any questions about custom decor or custom keepsakes, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I have over 20 years of making the highest quality keepsakes to last a lifetime.

Creative Wedding Gifts: Custom PIllows

Creative Wedding Gifts vs Traditional Wedding Gifts

Unique and creative wedding gifts — such as custom pillows — can be more far meaningful and lasting than traditional wedding gifts. At Reminkie, we don’t simply create memory bears. We also design custom pillows, custom blankets and throws, and keepsake quilts. In fact, we receive many requests for custom pillows as creative wedding gifts.

Shown in the photo to the right is one of our custom pillows made from a woman’s beautiful wedding dress. Here is the woman’s response to receiving the custom pillow — made from her very own wedding dress: “What an amazing keepsake of our wedding! I’m reminded of our special day every time I see this beautiful pillow on our bed. I love it, especially the button details.”

However, nowadays with so many couples living together before marriage, traditional wedding gifts are often redundant and discarded. This is why so many search for creative wedding gifts today.

New Product for Horse Lovers! Custom Pillows made from Horse Blankets

At ReMinkie Memory Bears, we’re excited to announce a new product especially designed for horse-lovers.

Recently, Rita Glosser was approached by a lifelong equestrian who was grieving over the loss of her beloved horse. She asked Rita if ReMinkie could make custom pillows out of her old horse blankets in memory of the horse who passed away. Rita’s answer was a resounding “Yes.”

Following the tremendous success of her first horse-blanket pillows, Rita is now expanding her product line. ReMinkie’s custom pillows made from horse blankets are the perfect way to honor and memorialize your horse. They also make great gifts for the equestrians and horse-lovers in your life.

Rita Glosser of ReMinkie is a pro at creating timeless and treasured keepsakes in memory and honor of loved ones. For over 20 years, she has been making memory bears of the highest quality. From there, she has expanded to designing custom pillows, custom blankets, keepsake quilts, custom scarves and more. She transforms sentimental fur, fabric, neckties and more into keepsakes that last a lifetime. She has created memory bears and more in honor of mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters, children, friends… and now horses.

Rita is very pleased that her horse-blanket pillows may comfort equestrians in times of loss, and help them to commemorate their beautiful and beloved horses.
