Monkey Palampore Soft Velvet

Monkey Palampore is a large-scale, statement design. A palampore is a type of hand-painted and mordant-dyed bed cover made in India for the export market during the eighteenth and very early nineteenth centuries. Only the wealthiest could afford to buy palampores, and so the few examples that have survived are very valuable today. Taking different elements from traditional palampores and with the addition of playful monkeys and a bird, this fabric is a magical new take on a centuries-old design. I painted it in watercolour, using a resist technique to form some of the intricate patterns within the motifs. I hope to have maintained the beauty of those stunning pieces while adding my own touches to personalise and update them. Available as both fabric and wallpaper, this design is sure to make a dramatic statement anywhere – as curtains, for wall coverings, bed hangings, and cushions.
