Who We Are

About the Brand

Robyn Valerie is a creative brand that specialises in surface pattern design, founded by Robyn Schumacher. We create original and bespoke patterns that are in turn used to create a variety of products, such as fabric, wallpaper, accessories and homeware items. We offer both in-house product ranges, as well as licensing our artwork to other businesses.

The brand launched in 2022 selling tea-towels, aprons, hats, and tote bags all unique to our in-house pattern designs. Additionally, we also licensed our first wallpaper collection at Robin Sprong. (Be sure to check out the collection using the following link).

About Robyn

Hello and welcome! I’m Robyn, the founder and creative director at Robyn Valerie.

I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2020 with a BA majoring in Classical studies and Business French, during which time I also taught piano lessons (and currently still do). Music has always been a special escape for me from the craziness of life. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a special interest in and been enthusiastic about history and European culture, especially anything and everything to do with France and Britain.

In 2021, I took a gap year, during which time I discovered pattern design and taught myself the skills I needed to become a surface designer. This journey started after I stumbled upon Spoonflower and felt inspired to create my own repeating patterns. I slowly taught myself how to do so by hand, and then eventually braved learning Photoshop. I joined Skillshare as a tool to advance my learning process and took a few of Bärbel Dressler's historical pattern style classes to help me create my first collection.
In 2022, I enrolled in Bonnie Christine’s Immersion class, which taught me many new skills and helped me grow in my knowledge as a designer and entrepreneur. I also ended up landing an in-house design job at Robin Sprong Wallpapers, which has been a great opportunity and learning curve for me as someone new in the creative industry.

My style is heavily influenced by the likes of William Morris from the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as other historical pattern styles. I'm a huge fan of French and English country decor and love the romanticism of a royal court from Jane Austen's era. I aim to create beauty that has an elegance and sophistication that will stand the test of time. I hope that Robyn Valerie will be able to put a smile on your face while on my quest to accomplish this.

One of my favourite quotes by William Morris -
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful"
- William Morris
