After being immersed in the world of textile design for over sixty years, one would think Randy Trull would begin to slow down. But retirement is not a word he likes. As Lead Designer for MFANO Fabrics, Randy continues to create fresh, modern, cutting-edge designs. His designs are featured in MFANO’s collection of over 200 fabrics in their proprietary Sunbrella® line.
Renowned in the textile world for many firsts that were inspired by his uncanny ability to think outside the box, Randy is still making headlines. He designed Dupione for Sunbrella®, and it became their bestselling fabric. A consummate gentleman with a winning personality, Randy is always ready to talk about his two latest ventures, MFANO Fabrics and its manufacturing and sewing subsidiary Pender Creek Design Workshop. Randy and John Miller, his business partner and fellow designer, together provide MFANO’s clients with one of the most talented, innovative and experienced team in the design world.
Where does Randy get his inspiration for new fabric designs like Windows, one of MFANO’s newest collections? How he’s inspired may surprise you. Randy talks about this and much more, including many adventures throughout his illustrious career, in A Legend in the Rag Trade by Michelle Saxton.
