Soraam Pillows & Totes

Soojin Yum is a Korean designer who lives in Seattle where she makes silk-screened pillow covers and totes under the name Soraam (Korean for “Please have a look with a smile”). That is such a sweet shop name, don’t you think? I like the white bow pillows and totes…


“Pillow covers are 18″x18″ and silk screened on pre-washed cotton and have a zipper closure along the bottom edge or some with an envelope closure. Tote bags are made of pre-washed black canvas with kona cotton lining.”

Soojjin wrote such a delightful email to me saying that decor8 has, “So many beautiful designs featured — it has been the biggest source for my inspiration. Now I started my own design business, I’m hoping my work can motivate someone to just start creating something. Starting out was the hardest part.” I thought that was really sincere and so true. Often just getting started, taking that first step, can be terrifying! But I believe that if you have passion, talent and courage that success will follow.

Congratulations Soojin on your exciting new business!

    Beautiful collection – it is always a pleasure to get to know to another textile designer. I love the bow too – it is so nice to see how it looks printed with white ink on a black bag and with black ink on a ecru cushion! Very nice label, patterns and yes a cute name!
