Banke Kuku’s Textile Fusion

Banke Kuku’s textiles fuses aspects of African and Western culture to create beautiful and elegant fabrics. Banke Kuku Textiles can be identified by its intricate patterns, vibrant and sophisticated use of color as it upholds its African heritage.

The Nigerian born creative director, Banke Kuku graduated from Central St Martins and Chelsea Art College where she studied Textile Design. Banke was awarded the title ‘Queen of Colour’ by creative director of Jasmine di Milo. Her designs have been described as ‘Exquisite Piece of Art’ by Lidewij Edelkoort, one of the world’s most renowned trend forecasters. The designer has had vast experience in the industry; working with Duro Olowu, Jasmine di Milo, Burberry, Jewel by Lisa, Lot 78 and more.

Design transcends into all facets of life and with the emergence of African Fashion in the mainstream Western world, it seems this is being tastefully translated into interior and furniture design. This is the beginning of many to come.
