Dai wedding blanket cushion

This beautiful long cushion is made from a vintage Dai minority wedding blanket in light and dark blue, camel and off white. To show off the textile which was woven on a narrow loom, I've framed it with a border top and bottom. In order to get the right frame and backing textile, which is an intense indigo, I've cut up a minority skirt. This has the added bonus of the heavily pleated fabric once ironed out, having an interesting wavy texture. There is a zip fastener and feather pad. A unique and exquisite item, perfect for dressing a bed or a special sofa.

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.
