Vera Neumann (born Vera Salaff, July 24, 1907 – June 15, 1993) was an American artist and entrepreneur best known for her boldly colored linen patterns and scarves signed "Vera".
Her designs in the 60-'s and 70's were a rage.
Now they are super collectable and featured
She made her first scarves out of recycled parachute material during WWII
due to lack of materials during the war.
I have come to appreciate her artistry more and more as I
age. ; )
Here's more of her glorious designs.
Later, she also did aprons, kitchen towels, hot pad holders, etc.
People are making things out of her scarves now....
I didn't appreciate her as much when a youngster!
I now find her scarves in thrift stores, and
I love them!
She also painted.
There is a book about her.
All of this color is so wonderful.
Let's get jiggy wit it! ; )
I remembered you cuz my sister Nancy and I use to
dance with scarves and listen to your songs really loud
when our parents went out to dinner on
Wish I could see that now.
Have an exceptional Thursday,
my yummy friends and family.
Love to you all!
