“… ROMBAUT INTRODUCES NEW, ENGINEERED TEXTILES THAT FURTHER DEVELOP THE RUGGED FORM AND LUXURIOUS FEEL OF THIS UNIQUE PROPOSITION. SUPPORTING THE BRAND’S STRONG ECOLOGICAL STANDPOINT,

‘TAPA’ BARK FROM THE MULBERRY TREE IS HARVESTED IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC, ITS IVORY WHITE HUE CONTRASTING THE DARK ‘MUTUBA’ BARK FROM UGANDA THAT RETURNS FOR SS ’14. THESE OUTSTANDING NATURAL PLANT FIBRES ARE COATED IN AMAZON LATEX, PROVIDING A SUPPLE BASE FOR COMFORT AND A TEXTURED EFFECT. LIKEWISE AN ORGANIC COTTON CANVAS IS GIVEN THE SAME TREATMENT, OFFERING A MORE CLASSIC TOUCH.”
