Growing up, we always had Indian fabrics from Gujarat, where my family is from, in our home. And today I like to incorporate my culture into my design.
And even though John Robshaw isn’t from the East, he still says he caught the “Asia bug” after going to India to find indigo dye for his paintings.
While there he discovered the local artisans making printed and woven textiles in Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Since then he has brought us his line of pillows and fabrics.
Imagine them next to his intricately carved headboard.
At a touch of exotic to your next party with this pretty card.
And take a seat on this bone inlay chair.
Robshaw not only picks up pieces from India, but also Vietnam, Cambodia, Zimbabwe and Bolivia.
He says that by working with artisans abroad, he is able to become part of their lives. They invite him to weddings and festivals.
Sounds like a great adventure!
