Meet celebrated artist and textile designer John Robshaw. You have likely seen his designs at Bloomingdale’s, Anthropologie and Garnet Hill. In addition to off-the-rack home decor John has created several exclusive fabric collections for Duralee Fabrics; (available for purchase by the yard) inspired by his love of Eastern motifs and traditional methods of textile block printing infused with his own painting style.
Many of John’s textiles are known for their “batik” or block-print look. Before screen, digital printing (or RGB/CMYK), fabric patterns were created by skilled artisans using carved blocks and required just the right color mixture from dye masters. Within his brand, these same standards are maintained today. This historical approach is what really sets John Robshaw Textiles apart from other designer collections.
One of our favorite patterns is Busun in John’s signature indigo color. Busun is named after one of South Korea’s largest cities, using an indigo color traditionally reserved for the likes of Korean royalty. Busun Indigo comes in other colorways and features Asian cypress trees and delicate flowers.
John Robshaw Textiles are perfect for those of us wanting a cottage or boho chic look! His color palette is widely varied from warm reds and teal to plum, aqua blue, limes, moss green, neutral taupe and grey, and of course, indigo. Visit 1502 Fabrics in High Point to see his designs in person.
