Celebrating our First Company Anniversary

JEHANE LTD is celebrating our 1st birthday. Thank you to all of our clients and artists for your support and business in our first year.

“ I am proud to have established a strong list of exceptional artists in our starting year. With a rapidly expanding licensing programme, there is much to celebrate. One of my juicy goals for this year is to exhibit at a US trade fair. I have booked to show at Blueprint in May. We are already developing new concepts for the New York show. We hope to see you there!” Jehane
