Well i have to admit i was not down with the textile history of the USA and therefor have missed out on some super designers. One of which i was only introduced to when i first moved to seattle and that is Vera Neumann. I kept buying these great vintage place mats, table cloths, napkins, and scarves and then i finally realized Hey this woman is a top designer and has beautiful colour and hand painting skills. Sorry US designer friends i'm sure this is old news. However we should always remember the legends.
