Jaecine, Countess of Albramere (1709 – 1777)
The Countess came from a prominent family that owned several wool and textile mills. A friend of artists, she began designing her own draperies, linens, and fabrics to suite her aesthetic and other prominent women with large houses. Using her husband’s funds and the family factories she later created The House of Albramere, a largely successful venture as manufacturer and seller of fine linens to the fashionable and wealthy.
