Jenny is English, a textile historian, at one time a member of the Textile Department at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
She has lived in Delhi for the past twenty years, and spends much of her time in Kashmir, working with her partners and their talented team of craftsmen.
Infusing new life into the famous Kashmir shawl- making tradition, they produce a unique collection of Lena cashmere and fine Kashmir wool stoles, scarves and throws. In subtle textures and softly harmonizing colours, the team and its crafts people have achieved superb examples of contemporary fashion.
The company develops designs and weaves in its own workshops in Kashmir. Together with the emphasis on creativity and innovation, equally important is the discipline of quality and punctual deliveries. Jenny has inspired her team to work in all it does to the highest standards.
With successful sales in Europe, the USA, the Far East and Australia the company has expanded to include a delightful collection of hand woven silks and Cottons.
