Karya Mats x Shan Shan Lim (2018)
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Karya Mats for their first series of their
exclusive ‘Artist Edition'. I was inspired by the Malaysian traditional textiles,
particularly batik, a resist dye technique.
The floral motifs were drawn from flowers and fruits that grow in our tropical motherland.
The final design manifested as layered lotuses floating together on water, hence, the name 'Teratai'.
All mats produced by Karya Mats are made of recyclable natural rubber with microfiber suede surface, free of toxic materials. They are available in two sizes - everyday (3mm) mats and travelite (1.5mm) mats. You can shop this design here.
