Vera is usually the name we whisper when we talk about our favorite tea towel designer. So many bloggers adore Vera. I not only adore her but I have a growing collection of her work. There's another textile artist that you don't hear so much about and her name is Tammis Keefe.
Tammis Keefe was born in 1913 and died in 1960 after a long illness. This website gives a detailed history of her life.
Tammis is one of the most well known textile designers for handkerchiefs. Dioramarama has some fabulous photos of her work. Dioramarama mentions that you can find more of her work in the book Handkerchiefs the Collectors Guide.
If any of you are looking for items to ReSell, Tammis Keefe is certainly a name to look out for. Another Cat tea towel recently sold on eBay for $45.00. Many of her items sell for less with a lot of auctions closing around $10. These Tammis Keefe items will all be heading for auction soon.
Do you collect any textile designer items?
