vera neumann

vera neumann was an american artist and entrepreneur. she is best known for her bold colored patterns on her linens and scarves, signed with her script “vera” and a ladybug. world war two was in full swing when vera found that the linen supply was dwindling. searching for more linen for her products, she came across extra parachute silk at an army surplusstore. vera scarves launched the business into immediate popularity and vera was soon on a first-name basis with women around the country. marilyn monroe was a fan, as well as grace kelly. women around the country chose vera products for their color and happy prints.
