Framed Banjara rumal

PENNY WORRALL
I bought this vintage Banjara rumal because not only is the embroidery and applique exquisite, the colours are also very pretty. It dates to around 1980 so they are still good. A rumal is a small decorative piece of cloth with a special use, such as in ceremonies or to cover or wrap gifts. I've mounted the rumal on dark blue dyed vintage hemp which is stretched over a canvas. It makes a lovely piece of wall art and the little mirrors reflect the light.

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.
