Miao Collar Cushion

PENNY WORRALL
The applique and embroidery on this cushion is on a tiny scale and is all hand done. Its exquisite! The textile was originally the collar of a Miao minority costume and the sides have been sewn together to make the cushion front. The back of the cushion is a vintage Zhuang homespun textile and has the slubby texture and slightly uneven weave that is characteristic of this. The cushion has a zip fastener and 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.
