THE JROSE VISION
JROSE is the work of textile artist and designer Jessica Hagar. Every piece is handmade and one of a kind with an emphasis on fine American craftsmanship. JROSE strives for excellence in craft and quality in materials and finished products. She is always looking for ways to make her pieces using locally found or American sourced materials. During the making process there is very little waste and every process is done by hand. She seeks to create designs that are simple, durable, and enjoyable to wear. Each design is created to stand the test of time and to fit in with your personal creative style.
Her hope is to see her products being used in creative ways with elegance and pride.
"I hope that everyone will use my work to express themselves as a person and just enjoy the texture and movement that comes with getting to wear quality handmade fabric.
Jessica Rose Hagar grew up in McMinnville, Tennessee. Known for its beautiful national park and nurseries, McMinnville allowed Jessica to develop a love for the natural world.
She found a love for art through community art programs, and began her college career at Tennessee Technological University desiring to teach art on a professional level. She soon realized how much she enjoyed working in the Fibers studio at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville, TN.
She has a BFA from TTU in Art Education as well as Fiber Arts. She has been nationally nominated for a NICHE Award three times for her work in textiles. Jessica received the Bacchanal Art Scholarship as well as a URECA grant for an Internship in New York City with Kordal.
She recently went back to the Appalachian Center for Craft as their Fibers Artist-in-Residence. Now she is currently working as the creator and owner of Jrose Textile Arts, where she designs and makes hand woven and dyed wearable and decorative Fiber Art. Her work can be found in galleries and stores throughout the country. Jessica also works as an Arts Educator at Peachtree Learning Center in Cookeville Tennessee.
