Robin Thompson's Profile
Inspired by the world's greatest fabrics from the past and present, like many, I collect. I started selling some of my collection in 2009 and have since found great pleasure in sharing my treasure - I love hearing what a customer has to say about a particular piece of fabric, and their ideas for it.
I favour natural fibres, designs that are beautiful and independent of fad, and selected modern designers whose ideas seem to speak well, a particular sentiment. Vintage japanese kimono fabrics have dominated much of my interest and have inspired me to find modern creations that have rediscovered the art of using beautiful dyes, discerning colour combinations and woven textures that reflect the environment. This is what I see in LINNET.
Now based in Dubai I am journeying through another whole world of fascinating fabrics from the surrounding regions…
