You’ve seen his work in the collections of Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and many others. Francis Jens Spitta has been designing prints for the fashion and interiors communities for the last two decades. And now, he’s designing for his own eponymous collection FJS. It’s about time!

Born in Sydney, Australia, at the ripe old age of 9 months he immigrated to America with his family and settled in sunny Los Angeles. Sitting at his mother’s side while she sewed her own clothes, as early as three years old, young Francis knew he loved design. Following his passion, he pursued a BFA in fashion design from Otis College of Art and Design where he discovered he had a talent for print design. It wasn’t long before his work made it’s way onto the runways and into the showrooms of American and European designers. And while the success was satisfying, Francis always dreamed of having his own home collection.

In 2009, he jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire and launched FJS. While his goal is to build a collection that covers every aspect of the home, for now, it’s all about pillows. For his inaugural collection, the concept was simple: produce a collection of pillows that had a statement print on both sides. So in essence, the customer would be getting two pillows for the price of one. The inspiration? His life.

"I've taken the iconic images of my life and I've twisted them around a bit; Those stunning delicate handkerchiefs in my grandmother’s top drawer? Pillows. The batiks I wore in seventh grade? They've been urbanized. Those groovy hippie skirts in my mother’s closet? Painterly Ikats. The globes and maps in my fathers office? They’re all pillows…”

Each cushion is lovingly hand sewn and hand printed in Los Angeles on a fabrication that feels like a cross between a silk twill and a cool, crisp, cotton shirt; And…everything is machine washable.
