She produced textile designs for the Wiener Werkstatte and some of the Parisian fashion houses while she lived in Vienna. She married the architect and interior designer Jacques Groag - they made a successful team. However- in 1939 they were compelled to emigrate to the UK. Jacqueline Groag continued to produce textile design work for the British market- and after the war her designs could be seen at numerous outlets such as David Whitehead- Grafton- John Lewis and Liberty. For more than 20 years she worked as a freelance designer- supplying designs for carpets- greetings cards- laminates- plastics- textiles- wallpapers and wrapping papers to many firms including Bond-Worth Carpets- British European Airways- the British Overseas Airways Corporation- Dunlop- ICI and London Transport.
