Born in San Francisco, Kaffe Fassett won a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston at the age of 19. He settled in England in 1964.
His first design appeared in Vogue Knitting magazine.
Kaffe’s early commercial collections were commissioned by Missoni and Bill Gibb, and his designs have been collected by Lauren Bacall, Barbra Streisand, Shirley Maclaine, Ali McGraw, H.RH Princess Michael of Kent.
Kaffe became the first living textile artists to have a one man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1988. The unique sense of colour and desire to encourage others led to his reputation as a guru in the world of colour and textile. Kaffe Fassett Studio
