Zinc Textiles, launched in 2010, is one of the 5 collections of fabric and wallcoverings line in the Romo Group. Are you familiar with them?
We just received some marketing materials from Romo and they are refreshingly different. Zinc was launched in 2010 as their provocative, luxurious modern graphic line. Their Runway Line honors the fashion illustrator Rene Gruau, who for seven decades was the illustrator of choice for YSL, Lanvin, Hermes, Vogue, Givenchy and Christian Dior.
These large graphic prints are so unique and printed on 'silk so fluid they could hang in the wardrobe as well as the window'. What a cool idea. I know a few decorators who would love to incorporate this into their repertoire.
Their textiles cross the boundary between fashion and decor. "Oversized boucle weaves hint at the legendary Chanel suit" their catalog says.
Their Nomad Collection hints at tatoos and nomadic textures, burnished metallics and exotic animal skins.
Romo has beautiful fabrics and wall coverings like this line of geometric weaves
or these geometric cut velvets.
Other brands in this group are Mark Alexander, Black Edition where you can find wide width sheers and tie dyes like these,
I currently have fabrics on the brain since I'm trying to decide on a pattern for a window treatment in my One Room Challenge! We spent hours this weekend looking at fabrics in person..so great to feel the 'hand' of the fabric, see the scale and color saturation in person! But the Romo Group is worth getting to know! You can always request samples!
See you tomorrow for Week 3 ORC update!
