The Neumans bought an old mansion which was converted into her studio and factory. Vera's brother, Philip Salaff, joined the company, and it was he who was responsible for the organization of Printex.The company was set up in a vertical fashion, meaning that the entire operation, from design to finishing, took place at the converted mansion.As many as 500-600 different designs a year were developed by the team, many of which were printed in the factory right below them.Geometrics, especially dots, were very popular, as were bold florals. Blouses and dresses were made from the Vera textile designs.According to the book: The third of four children, Vera was born to Russian immigrants Fanny and Meyer Salaff on July 24, 1907, in Stanford, Connecticut.
