Couture African Cushion


Couture African Cushion



Having been back to my mother land of Malaysia for the first time in years this past winter, I fell in love with the array of colourful batik fabrics all over again.

I was struck by the similarity between the South East Asian batiks of the museums and markets of Kuala Lumpur and the gorgeous African batiks that have become ever more desirable back in London.

A little research taught me that the Indonesian textile style reached Africa via the Dutch in the 19th century, with local West African artisans making the craft truly their own and developing a bold and distinctive style characterised by saturated colours and tribal motifs.

Capture the spirit of global travel with my couture Ankara cushion.
