teratai by shan shan lim
meditate to teratai, our batik-fusion artist edition mat.
For the first series of our Artist Edition, Malaysian artist Shan Shan Lim took inspiration from local traditional textiles, particularly batik. The floral motifs, particularly the lotus flower, were drawn from the flora of our tropical habitat and translated into a more contemporary design. This series is available in the style of everyday (3mm) mats and travelite (1.5mm) mats.
Shan Shan Lim is a textile and surface designer based in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. She graduated from Central Saint Martin's, London with a BA in Textile Design where she specialised in print and weave. When she's not designing and finding ways to innovate weave or tenun, she is continually developing her illustrative style for print.
