Supplier Spotlight Series – Romo Fabrics

Welcome to the third of the twelve blog spotlights in this series on the suppliers we are proud to work with to serve you, our valued customers at Blind Technique! This week’s blog is shining a supplier spotlight on Romo, who supply our fabric options for our curtains, sheers and voiles and is also a choice to consider when choosing fabric for Roman Blinds. We can also supply the fabric itself for you to use at home. Romo is a British company, like Blind Technique, and just like us is family run. It was founded in 1902 by Robert Mould, who gave his name to the company. Romo’s head office is based in Kirkby-in-Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, in the East Midlands. Romo enjoy an international reach for their fabrics with offices located in London, Munich, Cl. Houten (The Netherlands) and Cleveland, Ohio.

Romo has built its enviable textile reputation on the creation of classic and contemporary designs and versatile plains to deliver a diverse range and style depicting a sense of timeless elegance enriched with a sophisticated colour palette. Romo as a brand benefit from both generations of industry experience and distinctive British design and flair. Just like Blind Technique with our on-site workshop, Romo utilise their in-house design studio (established since the 1980s) in order to have more control over their production process from concept to completion which has been rewarded by their continual growth and position as a market leader for both designer fabrics and also wallcoverings.

Design Director Emily Mould leads the Romo studio, the creative hub behind each fabric collection launch undertaken bi-annually via their worldwide network of designers, retailers, distributors and agents, garnering these exclusive designs international brand recognition in over 70 countries to date.
