About the Seller
JAM ARCHIVES is a collaboration of three friends dedicated to preserving and enhancing the landscape of the American textile industry. Our archives date from the early 1800s. The designs are heavily inspired by trends in both decor and apparel relevant to the Parisian fashion of the time, from Japanese prints to Italian brocade. We will be donating a portion of our proceeds towards scholarships to help future leaders of the trade in their pursuits and innovations.
