"Nomadic Journeys is the latest collection from the Swiss textile house Fischbacher 1819. An intellectual exploration of nomadism, the new indoor textile collection is inspired by a way of life characterised by constant movement and a deep connection with nature.

'Our new collection tells stories of freedom and journeys to remote places. This thirst for discovery is what unites all generations of the Fischbacher family past and present.'

Camilla D. Fischbacher, Creative Director of Fischbacher 1819 The 'Nomadic Journeys' collection features a carefully selected colour palette of natural tones, yak wool, hemp, and other natural fibres, creating a refined yet authentic textural landscape. It offers a contemporary interpretation of different nomadic cultures, honouring timeless textile heritages whilst providing a glimpse into the future, specifically how textile design can be made more sustainable, something which Fischbacher has pioneered for many years."
