The Jet Fabric Collection
We are delighted to introduce the ‘JET’ collection of Fabrics using the wonderful mid Century designs of Joan Evelyn Thomson, who as well as living an extraordinary life is also the grandmother of Susanna White.
JET in the 1930’s went to art school in Paris and Vienna and also travelled extensively in Europe and America. Her long friendship with Edward Wolfe RA, for whom she often modelled, brought her into contact with the Bloomsbury Group.
After the war she worked for the iconic Zika Ascher in the late 1940’s and produced designs, the quality and relevance of which still resonate with our contemporary world. Marriages, motherhood and then her involvement during the Beatles era with the Maharishi and Transcendental Meditation caused these designs to be left undiscovered until unearthed by Susanna from an old folio in a chest of drawers.
