  • Just In: Navy Blue, Turquoise and Beige Aso Oke Cushions

    To add to our growing House and Home section, we have a new set of Aso Oke Cushions. These cushions are in an unusual colour palette of Turquoise, Navy Blue and Beige. A close-up look will reveal that the Aso-oke is the perforated style which adds a beautiful touch of the old to the modern take on the traditional fabric.

    Pop one on your favourite arm chair or get a pair or two and inject a new bright colour palette into you living space. These work beautifully in pairs as you can play around with the direction of the stripes on each cushion. The line pattern on each side of the pillow differs. One side is symmetrical and the other side isn’t giving you added versatility.

     Aso Oke is fairly thick and thus a very durable fabric. Can’t really go wrong! I am not supposed to have favourites but I am afraid I have to confess to absolutely LOVING these. The Aso-oke is a gorgeous texture and the colours work so beautifully together.

  • Just In: The Funky Zebra

    Perhaps it is the architect in me that references Piet Mondrian. I am not claiming to be an artistic genius mind you, but I really do love the boldness of simplicity, stripes and block colours. Sometimes though, we have to add that extra dash of colour.

    So check out our latest cushions or throw pillows as they seem to be called across the Atlantic. The Zebra Pop Cushions are made in Aso-oke our beloved woven textile from Southern Nigeria.

    I am often asked which is my favourite Urbanknit bag or scarf and I always think that is like asking which is my favourite child! Still, this collection I LOVE.

    We have one cushion with a Yellow Stripe and one with a Red Stripe. So the question is this should I go ‘fully Mondrian’ and add one with a blue stripe to the collection? What do you think?

    It also works perfect for grocery shopping so you don’t have to use those plastic bags (you know the ones you have no use for once you are home that just live permanently under the kitchen sink).

    The Tommy totes are made from a thick woven fabric known as Aso-oke which is similar in texture to denim.

    Durable, roomy, funky, eco-friendly, what more could you ask for!
