Exploring exotic fabric designs

 

Akron Beacon Journal

Fabric designer John Robshaw takes readers on a globe-trotting journey through his artistic training and creative processes in John Robshaw Prints: Textiles, Block Printing, Global Inspiration and Interiors (Chronicle Books, $40 in hardcover).

Robshaw, known for putting an updated twist on exotic fabric designs, takes readers to India, Indonesia, Thailand and elsewhere to describe the evolution of his art and share an inside look at the traditional techniques used to create his high-end fabrics. In photos and words, he describes the painstaking processes involved in block printing, batik, indigo dying and ikat weaving.

He also shares pictures of some of his designs and shows them used in room settings, many in his own home.

KIDS’ SHEETS

Kuviez sheet sets are designed to solve the problem of kids kicking off their covers in the night.

The sheets button together to keep them in place, even when the sleeper tosses and turns. The fitted bottom sheet has elastic anchors to keep it in place on the mattress, and the top sheet buttons to the bottom sheet at the sides of the bed.

The sheets come in twin size and two designs. Button-down blankets and duvet covers are expected to be available soon, as well as bedding for babies, toddlers, teens and adults.

The sheets can be ordered for $79.99 plus shipping at www.kuviez.com.
