vintage gujarati patta pillow

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.” When traveling John often finds amazing vintage textiles in different markets. These antique textiles are then turned into one-of-a-kind pillows showing the craftsmanship of the skilled artisans who originally made them. Handmade in India.
