Each Chandan-Whittle piece is an ode to India and its heritage, a celebration of the colour and chaos intrinsic to life there. For founder and designer Kam Chandan-Whittle, this is a chance to honour her family’s Indian roots whilst celebrating local artisans and their handicraft skills. This striking cushion cover made from the softest organic cotton embodies joy and radiance with its vivid yellow tone and delicate feathery pattern. It is hand screen printed by a womens’ co-operative in Karur, South India, that ensures fair wages and economic independence for its workers. Inspired by the lively energy of India and its imperfect beauty, it is finished with beautiful handmade ties.

Subtle and minimal, you have to look closely to see the magic of the lines that refract and deflect as through a prism. Light, airy and beautifully modern, with pale orange on the one side and an light, fresh blue on the other, a switch in mood is as easy as turning the cushion around. Pair with white and beige for a crisp finish or with greys for a more nuanced look.

Textiles really run in my family; my great grandfather started a fashion textile business in Punjab over a 100 years ago, so from age five that’s all I wanted to be involved in. Along the line the fashion influence translated into interior textiles and homewares.READ THE STORY
For the next year she developed a small range of screen printed and embroidered cushions that she showed at design markets every other weekend in different parts of London. It was only in the winter of 2012 that she rented a permanent studio space in West Norwood where she still works.
