Stuart at his desk. 1963



Stuart Moores Textiles is the creation of American textile artist Shelagh Jessop.  As the family patriarch, Stuart Moores Jessop, an inventor and chemical engineer, inspired his family by his hard work and ingenuity.  It is in his honour and by his example that each original work of art is made.

Shelagh has a BFA in Textile Design from the University of Kansas and spent two years studying horticulture in Texas. She has worked in an opera costume shop in the Midwest, at a theatrical production company in Shanghai, an art museum in Texas, a primary school in Australia, as a full-time artist in France and now Ireland.

All SMT products and kits are made from 100% hand dyed fabric cooked up in the dye studio. Each project is unique and one of a kind.
