THE JET COLLECTION
Welcome to the now recently expanded JET Collection of Fabrics and Wallpapers, which has been developed by Susanna White, the creative force behind Whiteworks, from designs created in the 1930s and 1940s by her eccentric and talented grandmother, Joan Evelyn Thomson, always known as JET. As from August 2019, we are delighted to introduce our new traditionally woven silks and screen-printed and hand-dyed linens.
JET started creating her designs in the 1930s following art school in the UK, Paris and Vienna. She travelled extensively in Europe and America and after the war worked for the iconic Zika Ascher. 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. If you would like to know more of this extraordinary story, this link will take you to a fuller biography, which provided the background to the World of Interiors article, coinciding with the launch of the JET Collection at Decorex 2017.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss the possibility of bespoke design in custom colours.
