"Keefe began working as a textile designer in the 1940's. She began designing for Kimbal scarves in 1953. Her designs are typically 1950s - full of whimsy and those great 50s colors: pink, turquoise, gold and black."
"Keefe's designs were often inspired by her travels. One can find Oriental, Arabian nights, and European castle themed hankies. She also did hankies featuring American cities and attractions."
"There are hundreds to choose from, as Keefe was quite prolific, especially considering that she died in 1960, and had such a short career." - quote link
