Key West Hand Print Fabrics was started in 1961 by Peter Pell and Jim Russell, and early on they were the makers of fabric for Lilly Pulitzer. From the cloth they made clothing which was designed by Virginia Pierce, or Vanda. By the mid 1970s there were 20 Key West Hand Print shops. Through the years they have been known for their bright and colorful prints. The company is still operating in Key West.
