A LIL HISTORY :: Vera Neumann was a famous print designer in the 60s - 70s. As a little kid her father gave her 50 cents for each sketchbook she could fill with her drawings as well as taking her to The Met every Sunday. Vera attended Cooper Union and worked as a fashion illustrator and textile designer in New York, also designing fabric and murals for children's rooms.
Vera and her textile producer husband moved into a small studio and began their company, Printex. They silkscreened linen placemats in their dining room which they cured in their kitchen oven. 😂 So amazing.
During World War II with linen supplies dwindling Vera went in search of alternative materials for her products. She came across some parachute silk at an army surplus store, an event which marked the beginning of her scarf business. "Vera scarves" became immediately popular and Vera herself was soon on a first-name basis with women like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and First Lady Bess Truman.
