Colors, Patterns, Ikat, and Some Elephants

"If you have a great idea, it will tell you how to execute it." —Jack H. Summerford


Ol' Johnny Robshaw does it again—but this time we can all afford it. Got to love the look for less!



So if you are into the ethnic, bohemian thang, well here you go. John Robshaw's new collection for Duralee is just perfect. It's at a lower price point than his own personal collection and you can purchase it by the yard (instead of in 5-yard minimums). The colors and patterns are signature to his style, and though he is best known for his prints, in this collection he presents a mix of wovens, embroideries, and cut chenille. And how about all this color? Delicious.



And if you look closely, weeeeell, you might even find an elephant or two. Oh, and I think I see an ikat, don't you? Can't have a fabric collection these days without at least one ikat! Love them all. 



Just look at everything together—so much fun. You really could do a whole space in this collection. 



The detail of the embroiderery on his elephant pattern makes for such a wonderful texture. Don't you just love the blue and brown combination?



And the thing John is probably best known for is his amazing hand-blocked prints. While these might not be hand-blocked, you get the effect of the pattern for a much better price. The prints really are beautiful and give you such a JR feel. Enjoy!
