Wanderland Collective collaborates with artists and designers to create a wide range of products, from reusable bamboo cups to silk scarves, aiming to provide a platform for creatives to showcase their work in different ways.
“The artworks that the Wanderland Collective cushions are based on was the first fully collaborative project created by Mrs + Mr Luke,” explains Faatimah. “The series is called ‘My Head, Your Hand’ and it was about combining parts of our art forms that seem to be really contradictory.”
The project began with the creation of organic, expressive artworks that Al has become known for, which was then interpreted by Faatimah in her favourite medium, plastic building blocks. “The end result was bold, playful artworks that harmoniously captured our individual aesthetics,” she says.
Beading designer Mbali Mthethwa of The Herd brought a beautiful textural dimension to the cushions.
There are three cushions in the collection, retailing from R1 190 each. The cushions are designed and made in South Africa.
