HEW and Company is a design house specializing in illustration, patterning, calligraphy, branding, paper and fiber goods, and prop styling based in Nashville, Tennessee. HEW is headed up by the owner and Creative Director, Jessie Pickren Warner. A fine arts background in fabric design combined with years of experience in both fibers and stationery in New York City, inspired and facilitated the creation of HEW. Everything produced by the HEW team is done so in the USA, by hand, through green practices, and with great care. HEW hand draws every little design and hand-tailors every last detail in-house.
The brand is dedicated to two very special women in Jessie's life - her childhood mentor and godmother Edna White Hyatt born May 10th 1927 and her maternal grandmother Betty Smith born May 25th 1925. Edna's name, penned as Hyatt, Edna White marks the letters of the brands name, while a liberal twist on Betty's family crest frames the brands image. Edna passed in December of 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia. Betty passed in August of 2013, her hand in Jessie's, in Birmingham, Alabama.
HEW works on projects large and small, near and far and would be happy to talk to you about your project.
