XL Banjara cushion

PENNY WORRALL
Just wow! This large cushion is made from a vintage Banjara rumal in almost perfect condition. A rumal such as this would be a textile used for special purposes such as a ceremonial cover or to wrap a gift. The rumal is made from layers of cotton quilted together in tiny stitches with decorative couching and embroidery. The colour of the cotton fabric is a really lovely madder browny-red and the decorative stitching in dark blue, yellow, red and off white. There is a small area of fading/wear shown in one of the photographs which is not really noticable
The back of the cushion is in plain linen and has been added keeping the beautifully over-sewn edges of the rumal visible. There is a one inch flange border, 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.
