This listing is for one handmade, quilted, 100% recycled yoga bolster cover (comes empty but with filling instructions) made by me in my off grid home in rural Australia.

Over 500 million kilograms of unwanted clothing ends up in landfill in Australia each year. This doesn’t include the 94 million kilograms exported overseas. (Textilebeat.com). It’s a sad and horrible fact and the only real way to reduce this is to stop consuming so much fast fashion.

My landfill saving yoga bolsters aren’t going to save us 500million kilos a year, but they could save up to 5 kilos each and that’s a good start!

The bolster cover is made from a combination of preloved materials. Linens and clothing, mostly off cuts from my other up cycling projects have been chosen, patchworked, layered, quilted and sewn together to become unique bolster covers that are sure to be a talking point in your yoga class or a beautiful feature in your home.
Each bolster cover will be a different combination of fabrics, but might include linen tea towels, cotton dress fabric scraps, denim, batik sarongs and vintage sheets. The internal soft wadding layer in the quilted part of the bolster is made from polar fleece (a synthetic that would breakdown into micro plastics in the environment) from at least one preloved windcheater and even the zip for the opening has been “harvested” and recycled from a preloved garment.

Each beautiful bolster cover is approximately 400g of what would otherwise be textile waste, turned into something practical.

The covers have a zip that allows to you fill them with whatever you choose to make the perfect bolster for you, and they come with instructions on how to stuff them and with what.

BONUS: the recommended filling a) will save an additional 2-5 kilos of textiles ending up in landfill and b) is completely free!

The bolsters measure approximately 70cm long by 23cm diameter (they will vary slightly), have a carry handle on one end and a zip at the other end for stuffing.

The bolster covers in the images are examples only. All covers will be a different combination of fabrics.

All Cleo’s Cottage Handmade items are made using recycled, scrap and remnant materials (as much as is possible) by me in our solar powered off grid home. So your items not only come with a tiny carbon footprint, they help us continue our slow living, homeschooling, homesteading life. Our family and our planet are truly grateful for your purchase 💚
