Ambiente Collection 2012

Ambiente Collection 2012Our latest range presented at the Ambiente trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany (10-14 February) has been inspired by our constant desire to produce contemporary soft furnishings in line with age old African traditions. We used deep hues and vibrant shades to offset the intricate beadwork and elaborate embroidery used to adorn robes in West Africa since the early nineteenth century. The embroidered designs are characterised by their formal composition and consistency of the pattern which have a distinctly Islamic flavour. The base cloth continues to be our trademark hand dyed linens and cotton velvets.
