Kaffe Fassett has made his home in London, England for the past 40 years. Born in San Francisco, he was raised in Big Sur where his interest in art was nurtured by his mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, all painters. A free spirit, he found work painting commissioned murals, illustrating books, creating set designs for theatre and selling paintings. After discovering quilting and an inspirational trip to India, Kaffe launched his first fabric line. The rest, as they say, is history.
