Batik - Karen


Traditional batik pattern in pink with white and black detailing on a turquoise background 100% cotton African batik cushion, framed in turquoise cotton piping.


Size: 51cm x 51cm

Font and Back: African batik turquoise and pink cotton

Piping: Light blue cotton


Why we love it:

One of our favourite cushions, it combines elegance and geometry with colour and modernity. This African batik fabric uses patterns that originate in Java where batik began, but with a colour palette that is instantly recognisable as West African. The elegant design is enhanced by the way the colours work together, and is a real statement piece.


Works well with:

On grey and blue seating this cushion will instantly lift the room with its vibrancy. Pick which of the colours you want to enhance through using the Karen with bright pinks and turquoises to really make a statement. Alternatively you can make it a standalone piece by setting it against more muted blues and whites. If you want to go for richness in pattern as well as colour, this cushion can be mixed with our Benin and Dakar batik cushions.

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.
