We just received our very first shipment of product from Jenny Pennywood! Her stuff is so cool. The patterns on her textiles are all hand drawn at her studio in San Francisco.
Jenny Pennywood is actually fine artist Jen Garrido, and the alter art persona was created to keep her fine art and her graphic design, illustrative career separate. She got her B.F.A in painting from Sonoma State University and her M.F.A in studio art from Mills College right here in Oakland, and she's shown her paintings nationally and internationally.
We think her napkin sets (two in a set) would look very nice next to a table setting from Heath Ceramics. They're a nice, thick blend of linen and rayon, and are screen printed with water-based inks. They're machine washable to boot.
We also got ahold of some of her limited edition zippered pouches. They're really versatile – you could carry them as a purse, or or just as a pouch to hold supplies 'n things.
Here's a cute photo of Jen in her studio (a great shot by Ilana Diamond for The Bold Italic). We love supporting artists like her. Keep an eye on our blog for an upcoming Q&A.
