Swat marriage pillow

PENNY WORRALL
This large and vibrant cushion is made from a vintage Swat marriage pillow. The silk colours are vibrant and a more contemporary mix of colours. The main watermelon colour has accents of yellow, light pink, jade green and dark blue. Its just lovely! I've backed the cushion with a vintage dark blue pin stripe from the Buyi minority which is a wonderful hand loomed textile. Giving interest to both sides of the cushion. There is 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.
