Stunning Orange Maonan Long Cushion

PENNY WORRALL
These two beautiful orange long cushions come from a vintage handwoven silk Maonan wedding blanket in stunning condition. The bright orange ground is decorated with auspicious symbols in green, pink and blue. There are handmade blue beaded tassels at the corners, a vintage hemp back, zip closure and feather pad. These long cushions are perfect for dressing beds with. Whilst they may appear expensive they take up the space of 2 or more smaller cushions.
There are two available and they can be viewed by appointment at my studio in Purley or please ask for a shipping quote.

I am inspired by the exquisite textiles designed and woven long ago by artisans often in some of the most challenging environments in the world. I love to find a new use for these textiles so that they become relevant in today’s interiors. Turning them into beautiful and unique cushions or lampshades or simply by framing them as a piece of wall art.

I particularly love the bright colours of the silk dowry textiles woven by the minority groups in South West China and the more organic raphia cloths and cotton stripweaves from the Kuba and Yoruba ethnic groups in West Africa.

My signature look mixes these bright and sophisticated silk brocades (especially the pinks!) with the contrasting rustic indigos and cottons, often embellished with embroidery or applique.

I work out of my studio in Purley, Surrey where you are very welcome by appointment to view current stock and other textiles or to discuss bespoke projects.
