The Restoration Pillow kit is replicated from a 17th Century piece that celebrates the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660, which placed Charles II on the restored throne. 

This generous and extravagant ‘Tree of Life’ design is a reflection of the new styles that prevailed in the third quarter of the 17th Century in England. The availability of beautiful wools, dyes and linen, the influence of foreign trade, and the desire for and the wealth to buy exquisite embroideries all combined to create the perfect era for crewel work.
