Having met Jane Foster in 2013, Keith was immediately drawn to her striking designs. Jane is a fun and quirky British designer from Devon, who is inspired by Scandinavian and 60s and 70s design. Her patterns originate as screen prints made at her studio before Keith works with Jane to create the final products.
