MAKER: They were Johnson and Faulkner, fabric and textile importers who, in the early 19th century founded their firm and portmanteau’d their names into Jofa. Jofa was known for its rich and important fabric designs. Later, in the mid 20th century, in 1965, Arthur H. Lee & Sons merged with Jofa making it Lee Jofa. Both had always been in the high end manufacturing and textile trade, but with Lee’s innovative tapestry techniques, and Jofa’s extensive archive, they had a new way forward with these two important fabric houses. Lee Jofa is now held by Kravet.
1960s Jofa “Longwood” Linen Fabric Sample
The operative word on this piece, “Longwood,” by Jofa, late 1960s, is “POPS!” The intense, classically navy blue background and the slightly nubbly linen texture of the surface combine to set the ground for the burnt orange, cranberry, rust and ivory flowers and leaf green and nutty brown foliage to pop off the textile surface. Primordial intensity to the illustrative quality of the sumptuous flora and foliage. It’s so beautiful — even more luscious in person than in the pics!
