Buyi Indigo Cushions with Tassels

This big fat pair of cushions is made from a vintage Buyi hand weave in thick cotton. The weave is lovely with a tiny herring bone pattern and it has a wonderful texture. The pattern is blue and white, and the blue is such a lovely bright indigo which is so hard to find.
The tassels are handmade from re-cycled jeans cotton.

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.
