Indigo Zhuang cushions with pink tassels

PENNY WORRALL
These cushions are made from an indigo Zhuang wedding blanket in thick handloomed cotton. I've used the blanket with the reverse side out which I think shows up the graphic design better. The back of the cushions are also a vintage minority handwoven textile, this time from the Buyi ethnic group. There are traces of a thin pink silk band in the border on one side of each cushion so I've added pink tassels to pick up this colour.
They are smaller cushions but packed full of character and perfect if you are looking for an interesting blue to complete a scheme.

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.
