I met Jennifer Clark this past January and she joined the studio as a full-time assistant in February. She has a wealth of experience and a great appreciation for textiles. She graduated from Philadelphia's University of the Arts, after which she traveled to Switzerland to take on an apprenticeship where she worked with textile designers and artists. Upon returning to the states, Jennifer landed a job as a textile designer for Jhane Barnes, a New York based menswear designer, where she worked on a line by Barnes for Knoll Textiles. She returned to Philadelphia to raise a family and it was while she was at home caring for her two children that her passion for design was reignited via socks. She designed her own line of hosiery that was sold locally before she started here. Currently, she’s breathing new life into the studio with her enthusiasm and keen eye for color and design.
