The Nila x Injiri Patchwork Cushion is the result of a collaboration between Nila and Chinar Farooqui, the designer of artisanal womenswear and home textile label, Injiri. Nila’s handwoven, naturally dyed upholstery textiles in various iterations of classic stripes were given to Chinar and her studio to interpret into their signature mattress cushion designs. Injiri’s creative patch-working of the textiles using hand-stitching techniques adopted a zero-waste approach to production very much in line with Nila’s design philosophy.

Nila’s journey can be traced to its meaning in Hindi: blue. It refers to the art of creating the ancient, plant-based indigo dye. The word stems from the Greek Indikon, meaning ‘from India’.
The Nila Collection explores natural indigo - incorporating the ancient, mysterious dye into handmade weaves, prints, and embroideries while honoring the simplicity of its dip-dyed shades.
