Today (Tuesday really) I went to the @JanuaryFurnShow at the NEC Birmingham, where we was doing a collaboration with Birmingham City University. I must say the students have really captured colour and the match between us and them, really works. Well done guys.
I also got to see an old friend @rug_maker who you're right makes Rugs. If you give them an item, for example a beautiful pocket square, that same pattern could be made into a rug for you. They have also teamed up with @PtolemyMann Textile Artist and designer. We chatted for some time and it was really good to touch base again. Then I turned the corner and who was there 😳 @SwafferFabrics (Mark, the main man) who have supported us from the start and want to continue, doing so. Thank you guys. @AlhambraFabrics was right next door and their fabrics always bring a smile to my face and get me dreaming.
Got introduced to Barbara Osorio Fabrics if you don't know get to know. She is only on Instagram @barbara_osorio_fabrics. Had a quick look a @GPlanDesign, looking good guys.
Then I got to have a chat with the Chief Executive of Duresta @duresta, Clive Kenyon-Brown Who was one of the nicest man at the show, (don't worry Mark, I said one of) giving little old me the time of day to explain the ranges and processes, there products have gone through. Their attention to detail is number one and the workmanship is class. I can only wish we will, one-day get to that level it's pretty high, but I'm most definitely gonna give it a go. Thank you for giving me your time.
Attention to detail, if you see it you know what I'm chatting about.
