Supporting British Arts and Culture
We have always drawn inspiration from our close alignment with British Arts and Culture, collaborating with and supporting a number of creatives over the years. Solidifying us as a conduit for both fashion and art, we are proud to introduce the Jigsaw Foundation: our charitable organisation dedicated to supporting British Arts and Culture.
The Foundation will launch a UK-based programme of initiatives and sponsorships, supporting everyone from undiscovered creatives at the start of their careers to larger national institutions, in order to promote a greater awareness of arts and culture within the community.
Grayson Perry: Smash Hits
National Galleries of Scotland
We are proud to be a co-sponsor of ‘Grayson Perry: Smash Hits’ exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland in the largest showcase of Sir Grayson Perry’s artwork: one of Britain’s most celebrated artists, renowned for using his art as a medium of satire and social commentary. Delivering classic pieces with a playful twist, our persona of English individuality with a touch of wit and irreverence makes the sponsorship of ‘Grayson Perry: Smash Hits’ exhibition a natural fit.

Gwen John: Art and Life in London and Paris
Pallant House Gallery
Partnering with some of Britain’s most progressive and exciting cultural institutions, we’re sponsoring Pallant House Gallery’s ‘Gwen John: Art and Life in London and Paris’ exhibition. Featuring more than 120 works, this exhibition aims to reilluminate Gwen John: a groundbreaking modern artist, who for decades was overshadowed by her famous brother Augustus and often portrayed as a recluse.

Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water
Pallant House Gallery
We sponsored Pallant House Gallery’s ‘Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water’ exhibition. Marking the gallery’s 40th anniversary, this exhibition offered a fascinating insight into how Sussex’s particular sense of place has inspired some of Britain’s most prolific, well-loved and intriguing artists over the centuries.

Our Creators: Sharan Ranshi
Exclusive Capsule Collection
In collaboration with British Indian artist and illustrator, Sharan Ranshi, we created a 13-piece capsule collection that incorporates her maximalist illustrations onto our signature chunky knits and fine silk pieces. Inspired by her cultural heritage, fashion, interiors, flora and fauna, Sharan seeks to celebrate the diversity of identity through her use of colour and print.
