Amanuban Ikat Cushion with Tassels

These cushions are from a wonderfully old and unused ikat from the village of Amanuban, Timor Indonesia. The colours are a faded indigo, which on a couple of the cushions has taken on a slight green tone, with bands of stripes in pale green, light and dark browns and stone. The colours are all natural dyes and are a muted soft pallet.
I have added handmade tassels at the corners and they are backed in vintage hemp. With zip fasteners and feathers pads.

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.
