Iban skirt panel cushions

These Iban skirt panels date to the early C20. The cotton ikat is thick and in good condition and I have made good large cushions out of them. The 2 cushions are from different panels so one is slightly more faded that the other and the patterns are different. The colours are the earthy tones of mineral dyes and there is a bit of faded indigo which reads as teal. I've therefore backed the cushions in a teal hand dyed hemp and added teal bamboo tassels at the corners. 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.
