Designer Roger Thomas is known for his work for major hospitality projects, including Wynn Resorts but his designs are based on a deep understanding of history and craft. Get behind the scenes into the creation of Venezia, a luxurious passementerie collection with Samuel & Sons. The patterns are interpretations of Roger’s sketches created while living in Venice, depicting details that inspired him while wandering through the churches, palaces, galleries and biennale exhibitions. Discover the time-honoured techniques of layered hand printing on silk and velvet, embroidery and appliqué techniques used to achieve spectacular results.
With thanks to those who filmed remotely during lockdown.
