I’ve always loved simplicity, understated classics and the unusual. I have been lucky to travel the world from childhood and experience new colours, flavours and cultures which has opened my eyes and make me believe that I can make a business which so many said would fail, work.
I have a fantastic team behind me and I’m always dreaming up the next design or product. Our wide range of ribbons and gift wrap accessories are available to order online via janemeans.com
I have a particular interest in Vintage and Contemporary Interiors, Gift Wrapping and Stationery, Textiles, Photography, Animals, Country Living and French Renaissance.
