John Robshaw Textiles




Recently, John Robshaw published a photo diary of his trip to Uzbekistan’s textile weavers. The photos show the remarkable process of making these unique textiles. Top photos show a woman extracting the silk from a boiling pot of silk worm cocoons and a close up of the weavers marking off the design with tape after the silk is spun. Second row shows one of the weavers and his emerging design, and a finished stack of designs. Bottom row shows the new collection. from Robshaw, which uses the exact pieces he purchased on this trip as well as an extended bedding collection inspired by the textiles but made using hand blocking.

i love John Robshaw's stuff...we bought a bunch of his bedding for our daughter's room and it made the pink and brown color scheme more sophisticated... see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11432553@N03/1241072443/in/set-72157601678742889/

Wow-- Joslyn, thank you for your photos. Our houses look alike in many ways -- love those 50s features-- but you have a great decorating and color sense. We are outside Chicago and wish you could come give us some direction! Really beautiful.
