"Many colors in our Thai ikat pillows are naturally sourced. Skilled artisans painstakingly extract dyestuffs from the bark, leaves, roots, and seeds of various plants to create the rich colors you see here. It takes more than a week of preparation to transform indigo leaves into a batch of deep blue dye. Once the color is prepared, cotton yarns are carefully tie-dyed in it before they are woven to create that distinctive, feathery look of an ikat."

Meet John Robshaw 

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.

After studying traditional block prints in China, John journeyed to India to find natural indigo dye for his paintings. Instead, he fell in love with the fabric-making traditions of the local artisans.

"By producing my textiles abroad, I get to become a minor character in the lives of the people I work with, and I can take inspiration from what I see and do there. I go to their weddings, celebrate their festivals, I get sick with them, I develop relationships with the people who are teaching me. When you look at my textiles, its like you've been on the world tour along with me." Robshaw
