A stone-grey linen blend cloth showing large painterly elephants padding through a dusty landscape, their tails twitching in the heat at the looming Indian taj's. Bolo is a fabric full of character, billowing with romantic story that feels both age old and present. Be transported to heady India by the delicate details of the elephant's trunk or the flecks of plaster pink in his saddlecloth.
Printed on the edge of the Lake District using ECOFAST technology, a digital pigment printing method which uses 50% less water than traditional techniques, ensures it is also kinder on our planet.
Jumbo, from our Gobi collection, radiates the whirling romance of traditional India. The design is taken from an Andrew Martin fabric classic, Jehangir, which borrowed the motif from the Mughal dynasty, renowned for architectural achievement and the crowning Taj Mahal. The attention then to exquisite decorative detail has been translated here to the quintessential pointing domes and lotus leaves, the wise wrinkles of each elephant and the curling vine patterns on their saddlecloths. Yet Jumbo brings this storied design up to date with splashes of vibrant contemporary colours, like a flourish of new life after the rain. It urges your senses melt together and breathe in the flurry of India, where hot air is infused with stimulating colours and the bustling hubbub is tangible.
