A journey in colour, taken together.

A fantasy of travel through colour escapism with a focus on structure and composition, this is the culmination of a two year adventure uniting two designers. The collaboration explores global representation of colour as a form of expression, reimagining traditional weaving and embroidery techniques to find a shared creative identity, steeped in heritage.

With colour and composition at its core, this bold collection sees the introduction of a woven diamond pattern. Four designs introduce ten new vibrant hues to the exclusive Roger Oates Design palette to create a contemporary collection full of energy and excitement.

From vivid brights to muted tones and fine textures to bold stripes, there is real versatility to the designs which is testament to the layering of pattern and careful placement of colour.

‘The diamond is at the heart of the collaboration. It was central to our first meetings, it challenged us to bring a whole new structure to Roger Oates flatweave, and it has rightly become the symbol of this collection.’ – Andy Guard
