Batik - Dakar


Tribal pattern in purple, yellow and light blue 100% cotton African batik cushion, framed in light purple cotton piping. Made using the wax resist batik process where the wax finish has been used to create a surface pattern.


Size: 51cm x 51cm

Font and Back: African batik bright purple, yellow and light blue cotton

Piping: Light purple cotton


Why we love it:

We love bright colours, and this cushion certainly has those. The pattern is evocative of the 50's, with its almost floral repeats, while the surface has a beautiful detail in the use of matt and shine to create another layer of complimentary swirl design. 


Works well with:

If your seating is dark or light, this stunning cushion can be used to add brightness and colour. The sheen makes this cushion work really well with a variety of fabrics. Use it with other cottons, as well as rough silks, linens and leather. The colours work well with most blues and is even better on the turquoise end of the blue spectrum. The purple can be brought out with bright pinks, when our Karen batik cushion can be added for extra impact. 

Doesn’t work with:

This highly detailed and stand-out cushion will fight fabrics with strong weaves, and isn’t recommended to go with shiny silks. Be careful with floral designs, done right it can work brilliantly with other cushions that play with the colours or set against more abstract floral patterns, but more traditional and realist designs will probably not work.
