Jasmine and Frangipani originates from the border detail of a unique chintz sarong in the collection of Karun Thakar. Hand-drawn using mordants and resists, the original document is of exceptional quality and was probably destined for Indonesian court use in the first half of the 18th Century. Inspired by the border of the same sarong as Coromandel Tulip, Jasmine and Frangipani is a smaller-scale companion fabric with a cornucopia of flowers densely packed into its intricate design.
Taking into account the exquisite quality of the original document Jasmine and Frangipani is a romantic six colour hand-screen-printed depiction of flowering Coromandel blossoms.
The Karun Thakar Fund
As a way of acknowledging Karun Thakar’s generosity in allowing Soane to draw inspiration from the textiles in his collection, we initiated The Karun Thakar Fund in collaboration with the V&A Museum.
Established in 2021 by Soane and anonymous donors, The Fund promotes materials-based, object-led learning, drawing on the collections of both the V&A and Karun Thakar and offers scholarships to student practitioners and researchers studying any aspect of Asian or African textile/dress design or history. By choosing fabrics from Soane’s collaboration with Karun Thakar you are directly supporting this Fund.
