  • 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?
