Mary Jaeger

Mary Jaeger designs sculpted and dyed accessories for women, focusing on quality and hand-made details. Drawing on her years in Asia, she creates timeless, well-constructed designs in unorthodox colors, patterns and striking textures – a perfect blend of Eastern and contemporary Western ideas. Her signature work includes shibori dyed tees and tucked wool wraps and other apparel, such as scarves, coats, jackets, capes, hats and bags. As one of her longtime customers puts it: “It’s classic with a surprising twist.”

Mary has studied at the University of Notre Dame, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Nihon Senshoku Gakuen, Kyoto, Japan, where she worked on couture collections with kimono artisans at Shiho International (Kyoto; Paris) and Koei Kogei Kinsai Yuzen Dyeing. She has also designed for Mary McFadden and Jack Mulqueen.

Mary is the recipient of several awards and honors, including the Association of Total Fashion Upcoming Designer Award (Osaka, Japan, 1988), she is a BUILD 2008 Special Honoree, and won the Smithsonian Honoring the Future Sustainability Award 2019. Her work is featured in The Fiber Arts Book of Wearable Art by Katherine Duncan Aimone. She has exhibited internationally and her work has been featured in publications including FiberArts, Surface Design, Food and Wine, New York Magazine, Oprah, Brides, Interior Design, Elle Décor, Weekend, McCalls, and Martha Stewart. She is currently based in New York City.

Mary also makes jewelry, as shown here, which like her textile work is shibori-oriented and shows her flair for the dramatic.
