Large Zhuang cushion

PENNY WORRALL
This large and fabulous cushion as been made from both panels of a vintage Zhuang baby blanket. The blanket was woven on a backstrap loom in cotton and silk and is a beautiful mix of pinks with accents of dark blue and celadon. This cushion has a wonderful patina. The weaver was unable to use silks from the same dye lots, having to use a variety of tones of pink and red, giving it a charming character. I've backed the cushion with indigo dyed vintage hemp and there is a zip fastener and bespoke feather pad.

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.
