Irene Werner has been designing and making her unique style of textiles in South Africa for the last 11 years. Working with a talented team of craftspeople, Irene produces beautiful handmade embroidered and crocheted home wares and bags. Each piece is made using the traditional skills of African craftspeople delivered with Irene’s eye for contemporary style and colour.

The West African embroidery technique used for these cushions and bags is a specialised craft that is passed down from generation to generation. The technique is intense and requires much dedication and precision. The embroidery method is based on mathematics and geometry and is done freehand by a hand held device. Once the embroiderers see a pattern, this is then imprinted in their minds. They can then apply this pattern to products large or small. Their adaptation skills are extraordinary. The tailors achieve a wonderfully finished product with a sharp eye, steady hand and years of apprenticeship.

Irene Werner cushions add a luxurious and unique accent to any living space. Big, bold and beautiful – the individual feel of each piece will transform any home. Beautiful handmade products, created with integrity.
