One of our key materials we use at Mekeka Designs is sourced from barkcloth. This article by Camillla Barungi highlights an exhibition our founder, Lesli Robertson curated focused on the story of this cloth.
Our TOUCH collection offers a curated selection of bespoke pillows and floor runners. Each is designed with texture, form, and function in mind.

Residential and Hospitality
Each textile is created by hand, traceable to an individual maker, place, and tradition. Our yardage can be translated into wall coverings, veneers, or anything you can envision.
