Taking inspiration from the history and landmarks of Portrush, we approached the design like a classic ‘Toile de Jouy’, depicting a complex scene in a single colour silhouette. We mixed this with a style inspired by Wedgwood Jasperware style (the company that produces the iconic World Cup Championship trophies).
Both these styles are very traditional, but by using silhouettes of golfers, the landscape, sea-gods and mythical creatures in a contemporary way we produced a fabric design that has the TB idiosyncratic look and feel. The sea gods and creatures are inspired by the nearby Giants Causeway and the mythology surrounding it. If you look closely, you can find the famous rock formation alongside the golfers, along with a few claret jugs for good measure.
