The John Robshaw fabric line is hand block printed in India by skilled artisans, using traditional printing methods. The fabrics are stretched out on long tables and printed using hand-carved wooden blocks. Due to the process of printing by hand, pattern repeats are approximate and variations in color may occur. We consider this part of the inherent beauty of the traditional craftsmanship and the resulting product.
John Robshaw has persisted through the years finding the most skilled artisans to work with to maintain his commitment to producing unique and hand crafted creations. His sharp eye for beauty and originality helped John come upon just the right block carvers, dye masters, printers as well as quilters, weavers and seamstresses to bring his designs to life.
My main goal on the road is to see as many new textiles, art and architecture as I can I hope you get out of town as well and use my notes. Of course if you find something I miss, please send me an update.
