The inspiration behind this range stems from the hand-woven textiles of ancient China & the desert oasis of now, Uzbekistan. The Silk Road Collection is locally created and hand-designed and sought inspiration from the traditional Ikats & Suzani’s of the 19th century. These textiles were then carried by trader on the famous route from China to Russia, aptly known as the Silk Road. The Ikat & Suzani old-style designs are one of Lula Fabric’s favourite themes, and you can see why.
The range is made of rustic cotton weaves in very functional colours of aqua, chartreuse, pink, charcoal & grey. They are perfect for upholstery, slipcovers & curtaining. Whilst maintaining it’s edge, Lula Fabrics has also introduced colours such as salmon, sea foam & yellow mixed in with the brilliant chartreuse, duck egg and subtle grey hues. This is extremely complimentary when combining with the bold Suzani and Ikat designs.
What is Ikat & Suzani?
Ikat is a traditional technique used to pattern textiles. It is one of the oldest forms of decoration in the fabric industry. You can witness Ikat in Lula Fabric’s Sarawak design, with it’s over-sized unitone prints with variegated shading, giving it a sense of depth and that worn look, that we so often seek.
