Amanatun cushion with tassels

This cushion is made from a thick handwoven cotton blanket from the Amanatun region of Timor, Indonesia. It dates to the 1930s and is in excellent condition. The blanket was woven in 3 panels and this cushion was taken from the middle panel. The colours are all natural dyes and include dark teal, ochre and stone. It is a very beautiful and calming palette which would enhance a natural and neutral interior scheme.
I've backed the cushion with a vintage hemp dyed a blue grey colour and there is a zip fastener and feather pad.

By Appointment

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.
