Celebrated textile designer, John Robshaw, first fell in love with fabric-making traditions in China. The vitality of textiles dyed, printed, woven, and stitched piqued a lifelong fascination. In India, John found that he could blend his own painterly style with the traditional method of block-printing for textiles that are fresh, yet timeless. “I take inspiration from what I see and do there. I develop relationships with the people who are teaching me. When you look at my textiles, it’s like you’ve been on the world tour with me.” The colors in the Khai Pillow are naturally sourced by skilled artisans who painstakingly extract dyestuffs from the bark, leaves, roots and seeds of various plants to create the rich color of this pillow. 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 the distinctive, feathery look of traditional ikat. Handmade in Thailand.
