Irma ART Studio is situated in the beautiful village of Wilderness on the Garden Route, Western Cape. Working as a full time artist, Irma received requests to start painting her Bushmen figures on fabric. It started off as a fun project making gifts for friends and family, but soon escalated into the production of hand painted aprons and cushion covers for shops and lodges in the area!
Each piece is carefully hand sewn from 100% pure cotton twine fabric and then hand painted with African wildlife such as Elephant, Rhino, Eland, Giraffe, etc. Irma loves to add the elongated figures of the Bushmen or Zulu tribes that depict the everyday life of these African men and women. These pieces are rounded off with African symbols, patterns and emblems.
The cushion covers are sewn from different pieces of fabric similar to quilt work before painting them and have an opening at the back to insert a cushion or stuffing.
