Temerity Jones London aims to be cool, quirky and distinctly different across a range of design led giftware and offers a range of officially licensed Frida Kahlo contemporary gifts and home accessories.

“Temerity Jones is one of the first UK licensees in gifting to launch its Frida Kahlo product range this year and in a big way,” said Maria Strid, Art Ask Agency, European agents for The Frida Kahlo Corporation.
