So here on the Spruce blog not only will we keep you up to date on fabric trends and styles we heart, but we are going to start a new series called, “Fabric Finds”. We are always looking for more gorgeous fabrics to carry and are also inundated by others with new fabric brands and collections all the time. Enough to keep my intern, Gabrielle, busy AROUND THE CLOCK! An exciting new launch that I have been waiting to write about is a collection from Duralee. Often smaller designers will partner with larger fabric brands to create a larger, more widely distributed fabric line. When I heard that John Robshaw of John Robshaw Textiles would be launching a line with Duralee I definitely did a double fist pump. Booyah! John Robshaw has been creating beautiful Indian textiles as well as soft goods for some time now, but due to price and availability it has been difficult for us to snag. The textiles that he currently produces are stunning and made all by hand. Take a look at this video below showing just how all his wood block printed fabrics are made.
Now with the partnership of Duralee and John Robshaw you can access designs inspired by his own collections! The accessibility and price are both very exciting with this new line. Duralee has used their own mills to produce these prints, many of which are in the United States. All of his designs are inspired by his time spent in Asia learning various techniques used there for textile design. Check out this video giving you an overall look at the new John Robshaw Collection from Duralee.
Here are a few of my favorite prints from the group!

Knowing what so many of our clients request we think this is going to be a big hit! The samples are on their way to Spruce as week speak, so come by and take a look soon. Be on the lookout for more Fabric Finds coming up from Spruce over the next few weeks!
