Tribal Tropical using ancient techniques!
Posted on 10 September 2015
In a recent photoshoot I had the pleasure of using really beautiful handmade Tribal tropical block printed cushions by Melbourne artist Shakiraaz.
At Otto+Mann Interior design and E-decorating we love seeking out new products and clever local designers so your home has a really unique apeaI and doesn’t look like some sort of package deal space!
If you are looking for a quick simple update for a room you cant go past getting new throw cushions. With summer not far away bright and bold designs and a burst of interest and inspiration to a room and can really change the feel.
Shakirazz designs combine traditional methods with fun tribal designs often including fun pom poms and tassels on the edges of her cushions.
Traditional block printing originally from India and Indonesia involves creating your design on metal or wooden blocks and hand printing repeated patterns.
The beauty of this kind of design is that every pattern on your cushion is unique and printed by hand.
Shakiraaz Cushions in my opinion are surprisingly well priced given their unique design and hand printed features starting at $79.00.
Of course if you are having your space re designed by Otto+mann you will receive industry discounts on these cushions of up to 40%.
If you are looking to add a pop of colour and individuality to your home I do recommend some of these fun designs.
