Bevis Bawa’ garden in Sri Lanka


Originally uploaded by Karnataka10

this piece is made from two lengths of linen/cotton mix fabric coated with an emulsion capable of taking ink jet inks, cobbled together with indigo dyed paper string in bold over stitches and then embroidered with raffia, silk and rayon yarn. The photographs were taken in Bevis Bawa’s garden on the west coast of Sri Lanka. He was a brilliant garden designer, and brother of the architect Jeffrey Bawa.

    I forgot to mention that this textile piece was created by Hoonie Feltham. I am, however, its proud owner.
