French designer Baptiste Viry has found a new use for old shoes, transforming used men’s leather shoes into a unique throw pillow. ‘The Little Shoes‘ is a hand-sewn patchwork of shoes, which retain their laces and design while blending into the pillow. It features suede backing, a removable feather interior, and is finished with a hot wax buff. The one-of-a-kind pillow is signed by Viry, wrapped with a vintage silk scarf, and priced at a mighty £800 ($1242). Click through to see pictures of ‘The Little Shoes’:
