Cochineal ikat cushion

PENNY WORRALL
This cushion is made from a thick cotton vintage ikat from the island of Timor, Indonesia. The ikat is coloured with natural dyes, indigo and cochineal. The use of cochineal is rare in Indonesia so this is quite an unusual textile. The corners have hand made tassels and the back of the cushion is a vintage Buyi minority handwoven textile in a lovely indigo stripe.
There is a zip fastener and feather pad.

There are 2 other cushions from this textile listed separately with the stripes horizontal.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 41cm (16in)
  • W: 58cm (23in)

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.
