Menswear Refashioned

Fabrics don’t have to be colored “old world” to be classic.  Uplifting color stories have recently carried us through the economic downturn. Despite menswear fashion being characterized as a dated tartan with dark and drab colors, it more importantly encompasses fine fabrics with clean lines and impeccable tailoring.  Today, intense color is a mainstay in decor.  Your home should reflect what you wear.  Your colorful personality should bounce off your decorated walls and furniture.  Tattersall, houndstooth, and plaids with rich color bring tried and true design into the 21st century.  Roth & Tompkins puts a fresh spin on traditional, using bold blacks, blues, and reds to resurrect a tired plaid and refashion color in a tattersall.

Roth Ethnics…No Ranch Required

Authenticity matters.  Complexity of weave and subtlety of color depict a true trading blanket.  Yarn dyed, sun dried, and hand loomed, the art of woven ethnics is a craft passed down from generation to generation.  Timeless and Traditional, these special fabrics can be a living room chair centerpiece or a sideboard table runner.  Layer with stripes, houndstooth, plaids and solids and “ethnic” becomes “staple”.  Once considered Western and Log Cabin bound, these dynamic fabrics can be used simply anywhere.  So, recover that window seat, re-upholster that headboard, step out of your comfort zone and make a statement…we dare you!
