Jane is a designer and printmaker of small leather goods and lifestyle products. Growing up in London, surrounded by historical architecture, beautiful parks and as a child, visiting the famous flower market on Columbia road every Sunday- All lends itself to Jane’s designs. Simple, urban prints which celebrate happy accidents too!  She loves misplaced print, not so much repeat pattern as it has the ‘manufactured’ look. Feeling inspired by old things and history.

 

" I have a great interest in history, especially the Victorian era. My romance with the past is partly to do with how well crafted things were made and not just well made, but aesthetically beautiful and built to last. My house is full of old beautiful things. It excites me to know they started life a long time a go, belonging to someone else and stretching across generations.....I am truly inspired by the craftsmanship of yesteryear."

 

JDB isn't a big fan of throwaway fashion, or mass-production.  Everything is designed with that in mind. You can see by the quality and finish that these products are meant to stand the test of time and grow old gracefully.

 

All collections are designed, printed and made in Kent, England.
