    Happy International Women's Day!!! Love this shot of our amazing weavers laughing, giggling and full of pride as we show them on the iPad all the wonderful furniture & accessories we make with their brocade textiles. Each lady can recognise their own weaving handwriting and gets super excited and animated when they spot theirs on a chair or in a room. These ladies are some of the most highly skilled textile artists in the world and we salute them!

  • Design News: A Rum Fellow x Pollack Indoor|Outdoor Fabric Collection

    Posted on 02/03/2017 by A Rum Fellow

    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.

  • ARF x Pollack Collection - The Design Process Behind the Scenes

    Posted on 22/02/2017 by A Rum Fellow

    As our collaboration with luxury New York textile studio Pollack is set to have its official launch tomorrow we thought we'd share some pictures of the design process and how it developed. We met Rachel and Brad (Design & Sales vice presidents respectively) at Decorex during London Design Festival in 2015.  We were bowled over by their passion and enthusiasm, the designs and attention to detail in their collections, and so we were thrilled when they invited us to collaborate with Pollack. We decided upon a range of outdoor fabrics, something impossible to achieve by our normal artisanal methods, so it was a great opportunity to realise the A Rum Fellow design style in beautiful and hard waring woven fabrics. The design process brought the Pollack team to London, and then for the final colour selection we went to their NY head offices. Working with Pollack has been inspiring, interesting and a whole lot of fun.

    This new indoor/outdoor line celebrates intricate geometric motifs and joyful colors, and imbues the fabrics with the durability and versatility that befits a modern lifestyle. The textiles are available in five patterns and 25 festive colourways. Available from Altfield in UK, and Pollack in the USA.

  • Handwoven Sign

    Posted on 11/01/2017 by A Rum Fellow

    Some images of the sign we designed & made for new Soho restaurant Casita Andina. Authentic artisan textiles designed in London and handwoven by Peruvian social enterprise Awamaki. It looks great from the street and perfectly compliments our contemporary take on traditional textiles throughout the restaurant.
