Blue and white striped cushions

This pair of cushions are made from a contemporary handwoven textile from the Karen Hmong ethnic group in Thailand. The textile is woven in thick cotton on narrow looms, so there are two pieces joined at the middle to get the desired width of the cushion. They are big soft squishy cushions and although not vintage are still unique and unlike anything you would be able to buy from a High Street retailer. There are zip fasteners and feather pads.

The purchase of these textiles is also providing desperately needed trade for communities who are dependant on tourism and have had their income disappear due to Covid travel restrictions.

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.
