Like many who have broken the shackles of the last three years restrictions, Lewis & Wood felt it was once again time to go travelling!
They have captured the spirit of their travels by putting together this group of global prints inspired by five different cultures.
Based on Indonesian tie dye technique that results in coloured dots surrounded by white rings.
In the single stripe the colouring is reversed to add a bit more interest.
Based on an Indian Ikat, the design printed on matelassé and adding a Kantha quilt running stitch.
Printed in 3 strong and 4 soft colourways.
An abstract all over pattern based on an early 20th century Nigerian resist print, executed using yam starch.
Named Minna after a town in Nigeria renowned for agriculture and textiles and Maze because it feels like a jigsaw.
This single colour design is based on the simple borders found on Samarkand Suzanis from Uzbekistan.
Available in nine colourways.
