Jack Lenor Larsen, is one of my hero's, internationally known for his woven and printed textiles he founded his textile business in 1952 and is one of the most prolific textile designers of the twentieth century. He designed fabrics for elegant homes, public buildings, and corporate offices and worked with Frank Lloyd Wright, Pan American and Braniff Airlines.
If you have a spare 23 minutes I can recommend watching this clip. Handmade in America. Love listening to Jack speak about his craft. Or if you can head over to New york, they are doing a film screening as part of the NYTM.
