One of the younger designers of to-day, Jane Edgar was trained at the Royal College of Art, South Kensington, and has already exhibited her designs in London, Brussels and Stockholm.
For some time she specialised in hand printed textiles, but recently has become known for her charmingly fresh designs for machine and screen printed fabrics, which have been reproduced by many leading manufacturers.
She produces successfully many different types of design – and throughout all her work can be noted her strong sense of pattern, and individual feeling for rich colour. She combines a fine appreciation of period design with a sound grasp of modern decorative tendencies.
