Wanderlust with John Robshaw

It is the time of year when blustery blue Winter ever-so-slowly recasts herself into the green-breath of Spring…. a moment when we might feel the pull to run off to an exotic land and reinvent ourselves as well. New York-based designer John Robshaw has a knack for inhabiting this type of fantastic life transforming adventure on a regular basis while developing and producing his exquisite hand-printed textiles. One minute he is block printing his designs with local artisans in Japuir, India, or perhaps sipping Turkish coffee in Beyoglu, the next he is dancing in the Philippines with T’boli Sikat Schoolchildren – teaching them painting techniques and donating books to encourage reading.  Robshaw’s keen eye mixes and matches multi-cultural influences to create block-printed bedding and textiles that are modern in spirit and globally soulful. So if you can’t get away from your office deadlines for a few months, no worries. India need not wait. Robshaw brings the breadth of his traveler’s lifestyle beautifully into your home. And, of course, we carry a lovely array of his adventures in gorgeousness right here at your favorite store, HighStreet.
