Jane Clucas

 Jane started her foray into vintage fabrics when she discovered charity shops at the age of 15! Her first collection of children’s clothes made from patchwork vintage fabrics was bought byPaul Smith and she continued to sell to stores such as Cath Kidston, Matches, The Conran Shop and Topshop. She also had a range in the Iena Boutique in Tokyo. Her latest obsession is with vintage pinnies and she has created a range of purses in the sweetest of designs, which will be available from Margot in July. Her passion for vintage fabrics remains undiminished and she spends a great deal of time finding exactly the right kind of textiles for her projects.
