the images above are from a new line of bedding "designed" by diane keaton (whose acting and movies i love by the way) currently being sold through bed bath &beyond.
i'm well aware of the fact that i did not invent the red cross imagery. but when i started making my pillows i could not find anything out there like them. and there have been plenty of smaller businesses since then using the same imagery on their pillows. but when it's a famous person selling through a chain store there is something quite irksome and violating about it. the hand-stitched "look" in particular and the color scheme...it gets under my skin. what do you think?
i have to admit this bothers me more than any other "copying" i've come across before.
