An international market leader of designer fabrics, wallcoverings and accessories, generations of experience and distinctive British design are the foundation of the Romo brand. Founded in 1902, Romo remains a family run business today, now in the 5th generation. Since establishing its first in-house design studio in the 1980s, Romo has continued to expand and evolve to become the internationally recognised company that it is today.

Renowned for its assorted library of classic and contemporary designs and versatile plains, Romo offers a diverse style and timeless elegance enriched with a sophisticated colour palette. Using both innovative technology and traditional techniques, Romo’s talented in-house design team create exceptional printed, woven and embroidered fabric designs to suit a range of projects from domestic interiors to contract developments.

The Romo Group houses six established fabric and wallcovering brands; Romo, Villa Nova, Kirkby Design, Black Edition, Mark Alexander and Zinc Textile, each with their own unique character and style. With the highest quality of product and design, The Romo Group offers a diverse range of fabrics, wallcoverings, trimmings and accessories.


“The Romo Group is committed to nurturing creative talent, employing many emerging designers across our six distinctive fabric and wallcovering brands.

The New Designers exhibition has consistently provided a fantastic platform for us to find new talented designers that are now creating imaginative designs in several of our in-house design studios. This injection of fresh talent is helping drive our brands to new heights of creativity.

Providing a stepping-stone for emerging designers and nurturing the skills of design graduates is in line with the company’s dedication to developing careers. After such challenging times, we feel it is now more important than ever to support up and coming designers striving to embark on a career in a field they are passionate about.

Romo is honoured to be a part of such an inspiring event and support the best emerging creative talent that the UK has to offer.” Emily Mould, Design Director.
