Tosca Wong – Adire African Print and Pillow Sewing

African Adire textile art involves staining fabric using a natural masking agent made from cornstarch. This method results in ink being applied to the fabric, resisting staining in areas where the cornstarch was applied. Adire art is renowned for its intricate designs, incorporating patterns and rhythm originally from African cultures. Its rustic appearance and versatile application make it widely appreciated. Tosca’s design pays homage to this ancient art form, featuring a heart frame adorned with solar and lunar imagery. Upon completing her Adire art on Egyptian cloth, she meticulously sewed on a furry backing and stuffed the two fabrics to create a memorable pillow. This cozy heirloom promises to be cherished for a lifetime, serving as both a cherished memory and a comforting piece of art.
