Coral Rote ikat cushions with fringed ends

PENNY WORRALL
This pair of cushions is made from a thick handloomed cotton shawl from Rote island Indonesia. I sometimes purchase contemporary handloomed textiles to support the weaving communities and help to keep these traditional skills alive. The ikat has been coloured with a natural dye and is a pretty coral colour. I've used the fringed ends of the shawl for the sides of the cushion. The ikat is used for both sides of the cushions and there are zip fasteners and feather 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.
