Abstract

This is an art studio Practice-based study that explored the creativity of using leather and woven Kente fabric from cotton and rayon yarns as materials for creating foot and arm-rest for interior furnishing, using sewing and embroidery techniques in textiles. While plain cotton and synthetic materials for foot and arm-rest abound in Ghana, the study found the combination of woven kente as traditional Ghanaian fabric and leather in the foot and arm-rest production as not exploited in the textile industries. The study proved that woven Kente fabric from cotton and rayon yarns; with leather are good materials for creating foot and arm-rest for interior furnishing. The fabric weaving techniques generated a well-defined weave pattern which was augmented by leather material woven in twill structure and embroidery technique, good for producing foot and arm-rest for interior furnishing.
