Beige Yoruba zig zag cushions

PENNY WORRALL
These cushions prove that neutrals needn't be boring!
They are made from vintage Yoruba aso oke's in cotton and wild silk, with a floating supplementary zig zag weft. The supplementary weft is strong and the textiles are examples of vintage Yoruba weaving at its best. Sadly I doubt I shall find anything like these again, they are so scarce now.
These are backed with a plain linen and I've added tassels at the corners as they're only little cushions so can be very decorative.

There are 2 different sizes, 16" x 17" and 15.5" x 18". Please check for availability if buying through the website.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 41cm (16in)

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.
