Romor Designs

Romor Designs

Romor Designs is the brainchild of Rob Jones who designs and makes all his own textiles using ancient Japanese textiles techniques including Shibori (shaped resist dyeing), Katagami stencilling, Sashiko (Japanese embroidery) and Boro (Japanese mending). Fabrics are dyed using indigo and natural plant dyes in Rob’s studio under an old railway arch in London Fields. Romor Designs uses vintage fabrics such as French linen and kimono fabrics wherever possible and reuses offcuts of dyed fabrics in all patterns requiring sewing. All depleted dyes are disposed of responsibly. New fabrics are organic where there is a choice.
