In a partnership celebrating skilled craftmanship, innovative design and sustainable making practices, the Tom Raffield x A Rum Fellow collaboration brings together a select range of Tom Raffield’s signature steam-bent upholstered furniture designs with our eye-catching indigo Ikat fabric. Inspired by a shared appreciation of traditional craft fused with contemporary design, the designs incorporate Tom Raffield’s innovative and low-energy form of steam bending with A Rum Fellow’s ethically sourced Ikat fabric which is made by and supportive of Guatemalan weaving cooperatives. The result: feel-good statement pieces that captivate the room. Design News | Ikat Arbor Crib Bench

Designer and maker Tom Raffield says: “It’s a special thing to collaborate with like-minded companies such as A Rum Fellow whose approach to design, craftsmanship and sustainability sits so nicely with the curves and forms of our furniture. For me, a large part of a product’s beauty is in its origins – who and how it was crafted – and this collaboration is a wonderful mix of provenance, beauty and timeless design.”

A Rum Fellow’s creative director Caroline Lindsell says: “Having our textiles adorning Tom Raffield’s beautiful furniture is a dreamy collaboration. The designs and making process have an integrity that really chimes with what we do at A Rum Fellow, fusing old craft traditions with a fresh perspective. A perfect combination.”

<![CDATA[Design News: A Rum Fellow x Pollack Indoor|Outdoor Fabric Collection]]> Thu, 02 Mar 2017 02:46:23 +0000 We have designed a collection of Indoor|Outdoor fabrics for luxury New York textile house Pollack. After meeting at London Design Festival 2015 we were struck by their passion and enthusiasm and we're really excited when they asked us to design a collection for them. We jumped at the opportunity to translate our vibrant weaves into high-performance fabrics suitable for outdoor use, something impossible to achieve by traditional weaving and natural fibres.

Pattern and colour animate this new indoor/outdoor line, celebrating intricate geometric motifs and joyful hues, whilst the fabrics have the durability and versatility that befits a modern lifestyle. The textiles are available in five patterns and 25 vibrant colorways. The collection is available from Altfield in the UK and Pollack in the USA.
