Future Primitive is a New York City based fashion brand that designs clothing for a global consumer with a consciously acquisitive nature. The collection is made from handwoven silks and fine cotton, block-printed and tailored by celebrated artisans in Jaipur.
Future Primitive was founded by Jenna Nankin, a fashion industry forecaster. In the 1990s, as fashion editor and stylist, she moved between New York and San Francisco at the explosion of the early tech boom. That fusion combined with her education in Textile Design lead her to travel the globe and meet makers in village towns where she now produces limited collections. Her designs are inspired by her cultural influencers and created for intelligent, adventurous women who understand the art of dressing.
