There is noting better than the knowledge that you have an incredibly special piece within your home, unique just to you. Add to that the feeling of history, drama and endless origin possibilities and you have House of Suki. Created and designed by the lovely Polly Cadden, each piece is hand made and created from vintage Japanese kimonos. The quality, texture and richness of the fabrics are simply stunning (photos will not do them justice). The combinations of fabrics on each piece is perfect, there is not one piece I've seen which doesn't fit together as though they were always intended for the other. With bedheads, throws through to cushions available the combinations are also endless. What makes them particularly magical to me is their possible origins, where were these fabrics worn? What event or location? Who wore them? Something as grand as a large ball or as simple as a magical evening where two people met for the first time, can keep the magic of these pieces alive forever.
Below are a few of my particular favourites currently on display in a pop-up on Glenferrie Road in Malvern. The colour palettes and prints are endless, make sure you view their site to see the full depth of the range. HERx
