Textile Designer, Jennie Jackson
I design, hand dye and hand print in my studio at home in Reigate. I create unique and distinctive pieces with a contemporary mid-century feel using multiple processes and layering. After graduating from Norwich School of Art (now NUA) with a degree in Graphic Design I worked in London design agencies for ten years. Now I apply my understanding of design and colour as a textile designer working mostly on linen and natural fabrics.

Using traditional printing techniques
I love traditional, hand printed techniques and most of my products are created this way. This means that no two lampshades or cushions or bags in any design will ever be the same. The placement of elements will differ slightly from piece to piece and as printing is done in small batches there will inevitably be slight variations in colour mixes. The natural inconsistencies of a hand made item is part of the product you buy. And while each item is unique the design you order will be rigorously checked and quality controlled for consistency.
Having said that, my scarves are now made using digital printing which has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. In fact, because of the work involved, it’s the only way to make these a viable product. At the same time, I still take one off commissions using traditional techniques.
While I do carry stock, some items are made to order and in this case will usually take about four weeks to make. Please get in touch if you require the item sooner. I also take on bespoke work and commissions. Please use the contact page if you have any further questions and follow me on Instagram for new designs or sign up to my newsletter
