AC x MANE
The Coussin artwork is designed by Chan for American company Bernhardt Textiles.
With the idea to create the most beautiful cushions in the world, pairing the utmost luxurious Couture hand-embroidery with the simplicity of an everyday object, Anabela collaborated with her friend Mane Virdee to create these one-of-a-kind cushions.
With her own eponymous brand, Virdee gains her inspirations by sourcing her components within the labyrinth of the narrow lanes of Old Delhi, a centuries' old textile district in India's capital. Days are spent rummaging through forgotten shelves and drawers, pulling out sequins and beads, creating the story in the hustle and bustle of the markets.
The beauty behind the cushions is a labour of love, with hour upon hour spent working with the craftsmen to bring the ideas to life. We believe in nurturing a craft that has been passed down from generation to generation through skilled artisans, delivering beauty that can only be crafted by hand.
