If I get this correctly, your saying that your using Designer material, to make and resell your own designer throw pillows. This is going to be dependent on your material source, your product and marketing. If you purchase your designer material raw in bulk, on bolts and such through a brand authorized vending avenue, then the intent for the material to be used in a final product is obvious and repackaging can generally be assumed. A license usage class may have already been negotiated by the manufacturer or the wholesaler. If however you are disassembling a designers finished product and reassembling it in some way such as a to obtain the fabric, create a clone, or knock off of another similar product line then that would likely be an infringement.

Use of any designers branding label should be avoided unless you have an appropriate license to do so. material use class or reuse licensing does not confer brand or designer name use.

Designer or branded Materials, Parts and Components are widely used in consumer products finished or assembled by third party businesses. These should be obtained through Reputable Recognized sources for your industry type to avoid later confusion on appropriate usage and usage licenses. When in Doubt contact your supplier or the designers vendor and ask about material useage guidelines, most will be happy to assist.

Answerof course it isn't! that's a breech of the designers copyright! if you get caught you will get prosecuted

AnswerHuh??? What kind of advice is that????

You can make stuff out of designer fabric and sell it. But you must mention the copyright owner's fabric:

i.e. Table cloths from DesignerName(C) fabric for sale at StoreName. NOT: StoreName table cloths for sale

see: http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/OurFight.HTML

AnswerAs the pages at the link (www.tabberone.com) in the previous answer shows, there are good arguments that it may be technically "legal" to use designer fabrics to create and sell such stuff, if you label it properly. However, there are also arguments the other way, so you may also have to defend yourself in federal court against trademark and copyright infringements. If you have a lot of time and money on your hands, you can "join the fight" against oppressive corporate tactics that stretch the intent of the protection they rightfully deserve, or ignore the issue and see what happens.

Down Pillows Maintenance TipsDown pillows are incredibly comfortable and can make your bed, sofa or love seat a luxurious place to relax. They're also extremely popular, and over the last few years, the cost of down pillows has dropped significantly. However, they require a bit more upkeep than other types of pillows.Keeping Your Down Pillows CleanAs down pillows are more difficult to clean than polyester pillows, the first logical step that you can take is to keep them clean for as long as possible. Try to avoid laundering your pillows. If you have to deal with a stain, use baking soda and water or a commercial stain remover.Unlike other pillows, down pillows need to be regularly fluffed to keep their form and to keep them comfortable. Fluffing pillows is easy. Push and hit your pillows lightly on their sides to keep the down evenly distributed. By fluffing your pillows every day, you'll keep them comfortable and cleaner for much longer.Laundering Your Down PillowsFinally, if down pillows are extremely soiled, you should wash them in cold water with a light detergent. Wring out excess water and use the lowest heat settings on your dryer. Be sure to check your down pillows regularly and take them out when they're dry.Down pillows are certainly worth the work, and with some regular upkeep, you shouldn't have to worry much about them. Take the time to protect your pillows and you'll be able to enjoy them for years.

Short answer is: no. from http://www.world.org/reuse/pillows: Pillows * Remove the stuffing and use to make other pillows thicker. * Keep it in your pet's cage for comfort. * Cut it in half, sew along the open end and make into two smaller camping pillows. * Instead of throwing it out, restuff it. * Use for pillow fights.
