Jain&Kriz is a Cologne / Prague based design company offering uniquely handcrafted and sustainable artistic textiles combining new design and old techniques. Spontaneous playful scribbles and doodles are the starting point for developing cheerful home accents.
The cross of cultures in Jain’s Indian origin and Kriz’s European background is evident in the aesthetic. The studio has developed an idiosyncratic and contemporary visual language of its own, with the instinctive, primal and surreal often resonating in the work. The products are made in collaboration with master artisans in Czech and India.
Jain&Kriz's design vision is distinctly cross-disciplinary, incorporating a passion and respect for the handmade into our work. We are dedicated to producing goods made within an ethically-sourced supply chain, which we research and adjust continually as we learn.
Anvita Jain received MFA in 2D Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan USA after studying in UK and India. Krystof Kriz received MA in Visual Communication from BIAD, UK after studying in Germany and Czech Republic. J&K have both been Associate Lecturers of Art and Design at Prague City University.
