Fil Doux Textiles has partnered with the designer Clodagh on a new collection, Nomad, which includes upholstery textiles and bed throws for hospitality spaces, born out of what the brands call “a shared respect for the environment.”

“When I first met the Fil Doux team, I felt as though I had expanded my family,” said Clodagh. “We talked the same language—including a dedication to nature and life-enhancing green design.”

The collection includes textural cotton-blend designs spanning woven fabrics and digital prints and a coordinating series of throw blankets in 15 earth-inspired colorways. The palette is inspired by Clodagh’s travels through Nepal, India, Ireland, Morocco and Africa. “I’m a nomad at heart; while traveling, I’m inspired not only by the weaving techniques of other countries but also architectural details, the colors and smells of the local markets, the native music, and the indigenous people,” said Clodagh. “By weaving and printing with an eye on ancient traditions, in a sense we are uniting nations in our textiles.”

Leonardo Novik, president of Fil Doux Textiles concurs: “We’re proud of this collection, and working with a designer whose values mirror our own. It’s warm and thoughtful, and like all our offerings, upholds our high environmental standards.”
