My new ice blue filigree print classic robe has a comfortable fit with an attached belt. Robes are generously scalloped by hand and fitted with an attached belt. Each robe begins as a print carved into wood and dipped in rich ice blue to be printed on comfy lightweight cotton. Inspired by antique porcelain china, I have taken my favorite elements and turned them into a beautiful everyday pattern for you to enjoy.
My new Filigree Print was inspired by a dream.
In the dream, I am at a small dinner party in a beautiful London brownstone in the Mayfair district. Our dinner party is seated around a beautiful antique dining table set with stunning bone china plates. The room’s walls are covered in a striking de Gournay wallpaper. The setting is elegant, warm and comfortable. I am at the table with friends talking while waiting to be served.
As I take in the scene with all my senses a vision for a new pattern emerged in my mind’s eye. The bone china’s Filigree elements combine with the room’s wallpaper, melting slowly into an idea…I can barely see it but there it is...
The dream skips backward, I’m now in the kitchen with the hostess. It’s the morning before the dinner party.. She is wearing a beautiful bathrobe with the pattern I had imagined. I could see the pattern's outline but not clearly. It was red with delicate lines. But the harder I tried to see the print the more it faded…..
Upon awakening I race down to my office to sketch as much of the design as possible. This is where it all started.
Robes can be machine washed, tumble dried and ironed. They have been washed multiple times in the printing process so they will not shrink.
