The Product: Dutch wax print botanical cushion
This bold, botanical, Dutch wax print cushion lifts any interior scheme. Dutch wax is a form of batik printing and the cushion, handmade by Onua, adds definition, contrast, and chic, neutral appeal. The repeating leaf design reads as a crisp monochrome but in fact, the ground cloth is a little softer than a pure white, much like a piece of aged parchment with a barely-there, printed, crackle-glazed effect that adds depth and interest.
The Onua brand name translates as ‘sibling’ in the ‘Twi’ Ghanaian dialect and reflects the brother/sister partnership behind the company. The Dutch wax fabric products themselves reflect the pair’s triple heritage. They were born in The Netherlands of Ghanaian parents and subsequently raised in the UK. Onua aims to convey African cultural heritage and make this accessible for western audiences, whilst at the same time emphasising the uniqueness of each separate region of that vast and vibrant continent. Their focus is to promote the artistry and traditional cloth patterns of West Africa.
First, these petite but statement black and white cushions are great for providing lumbar support on a favourite armchair. Second, they’d look great as a pair on a small scale sofa or bench seat. Alternatively, team them with larger plain or textured cushions in a similar monochrome palette on a more capacious, family sofa. Dress a slick, clean-lined sofa from the likes of Bo Concept or Calligaris with this eclectic, monochrome pattern.
The cushion fabric is made from 100% cotton with a co-ordinating concealed zip. The cushion measures 45cm square and comes filled with a duck feather pad for excellent plumping!
