Mark Alexander Fabrics and Wallpaper
Idolum is pleased to be able to offer the complete range of Mark Alexander fabrics and wallpapers. This new Romo Group brand is the result of collaboration between Mark Butcher and Alexander McKenzie. In their own words, their “design orientation is broadly eclectic in style and natural in quality. Influences range from African tribal cloths to twenties Vienna; Japanese art, to Mayan architecture.” The pair have worked closely with traditional mills to incorporate specialist techniques throughout the collection of Mark Alexander fabrics which accentuate the luxury of natural yarns. Their unique colour palette is based on subtle, natural shades, earthy tones and mellow hues which compliment the natural qualities of the yarns.
Mark Alexander Fabrics
Nantucket – This collection of heavy linens has a beautifully soft feel and luxurious handle and comes in a palette of colours that’s both original and fresh.

Woven entirely in Scotland and England from the finest wool and linen blends, the Panama range of furnishing fabrics draws its inspiration from classic tailoring.
Pullman – A luxurious collection of Alpaca and Mohair plain velvets with a soft, dense pile.
Kashmir – Merino wool, spun silks, angora and twisted linens are all combined in this Mark Alexander fabric collection. The intricate weaves echo the craftsmanship of traditional Silk Route Ikats and Kashmiri Moghul textiles. The colour palette hints at the naturally faded grandeur of days gone by.
Jazz –The finest silks and wools, subtly embellished with the simplest of motifs in a stunning range of soft metallic colours. A timeless and glamorous collection.
Naturals – This range of embroidered linens from Mark Alexander fabrics has its roots in a wide range of ethnic influences from antique Irish needlework to African Barkcloths. The simplicity of the designs gives a contemporary look which is complimented by a tonal colour palette.
Plainly – 33 beautiful soft colours across two plain linens and a linen-mix herringbone. The plain linens are all double-dyed to produce a lovely stonewash effect whilst the herringbone offers pure understated elegance.
Eclectic – This final collection from Mark Alexander fabrics takes its influence from a diverse range of global cultures. Ethnically-inspired weaves sit alongside authentic Ikats and subtly original printed designs.
Mark Alexander Wallpaper
The collection of Mark Alexander wallpaper is subtly textured and coloured and surface printed to give the feel of hand-blocked printing. The designs are organic, abstract and linear and have names such as Manila, Siam, Batik and Brushwork. Colours such as Pebble, Flint, Shell and Sea Grass compliment the soft, subtle palette which is already a signature of the Mark Alexander fabric ranges. The papers can be used to make a statement on their own, or can be combined with the range of textured plains all of which work beautifully with the Mark Alexander fabrics.
All papers in the Mark Alexander wallpaper collection come in 10.05m rolls and Romo supply their own recommended adhesive.
