Jennifer Shorto

Jennifer Shorto became a textile collector when she came across a very beautiful 18th century Suzani at the back of a cupboard. Her interest since has grown tremendously as she has traveled to many places befriending archeologist, writers and antique dealers who shared her same passion of exploring lands less traveled. A few years ago Jennifer acquired a West African fabric from the early 20th century, which gave her the desire and inspiration to start printing and engage in keeping certain patterns and their spirit alive.
