Blue Bolster Pillows
Our bolster pillows are nursery essentials - use them for support when feeding, as a bolster in an armchair at story time, in a cot or moses basket or just as a lovely decorative accessory on a bed. The options are endless! All of our bolsters have soft removable covers which are block printed by hand in 8 different designs and colours. We love these as everyday staples but they also make wonderful gifts.
Good to know
Our Ruffle and Bolster Pillows have been designed to use the small off-cuts of cloth from our other pieces. This means minimal wastage and in fact we're on a mission to get to zero fabric waste.
All of our fabrics are block printed by hand by our artisans and cooperatives in India and Nepal.
The pillow pad is filled with non-allergenic poly-fibre
The cover is made from 100% cotton muslin and is removable for machine washing at 30 degrees
Each pillow measures 48 x 10 cm
Would a bolster make a good present? Definitely! These are perfect gifts for new mamas - really useful, practical and stylish
Do these pillows have a firm or soft fill? The filling is firm - we wanted them to be supportive enough to use when breastfeeding or changing

We are a small business making lovely things for small people
Willa and The Bear was founded by Hattie in 2014. Mama to Willa, Maud and Gus, Hattie knows a thing or two about the parenting journey and the stuff that helps make life a little bit easier!
We believe in quality and longevity
Every one of our pieces is designed by Hattie in Norfolk and made in small, female run studios in India or Nepal. Shilpa in Jaipur and Rojina in Kathmandu oversee our makers who are all true artisans in their field, block-printing and finishing each item by hand.
Ethical production only
We only use trusted makers and supply chains that operate completely ethically. No mass-produced, anonymous factory settings for us which means that our products are invariably more expensive to produce but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We know that our customers appreciate this important part of our manufacturing process too.
Our female-led studios mix our environmentally-friendly dyes entirely by hand...
Hattie's designs are painstakingly transferred to specially prepared wooden blocks which are then carved by hand. The designs are then printed onto our fabric by skilled artisans who create perfect repeat patterns entirely by eye.
