This appealing print has been exclusively designed for Hemptech by David Trubridge - an innovative world renowned designer of objects of beauty, able to resonate within the human soul. "My ideas come from wild places, edges of turbulence and renewal, where seas break on beaches and headlands, where land and air meet on mountain ridges"
Rings Sheer Collection is a beautiful, delicately flowing drapery fabric, sophisticated yet imbued with an original & organic natural feel.
Rings Sheer is printed in New Zealand on a beautiful finely woven 100% natural sheer linen with a soft oatmeal hue - which is sustainably produced, and biodegradable - luxury with a true lightness of being.
David’s textile collections are inspired by the natural world that surrounds him and are a result of his interpretations and articulation of this world.
The crackled surface of melt pools on an Antarctic glacier; intricate, abstract layers of siltstone along a rocky Otago coastline; shoot-green bursts of life after a winter deluge in the Outback - these are the evocative images that inspired Rings.
Each colour combination has been selected from landscape photos that David has taken on his travels around the world.
“The land will give you colour combinations that may be unlikely but that always seem to work so well together,” says Trubridge.
Rings reflects the patterns and rhythms of nature as drawn by David. The lines take on a life of their own in meandering, spinning textures of life.
“I design to communicate, to tell a story, to relate what I find in the mountains and wilderness and what it is to be human. As an artist I develop forms and a vocabulary from what I see and feel around me. This is my personal language that I use to tell my story. No thinking or caring person doubts that we are at a crucial moment in human history. Enough of us are acutely aware of how overconsumption is threatening our environment and our future. -- if design is not actively trying to preserve our future it is, by default, destroying it."
