I'm an American designer with a maker's background.
I've been sewing garments since I was in grade school, and launched my first label, Jean Jones Handwovens, when I was 25. I'm originally from Birmingham, Alabama, where my family has lived for 5 generations. After living in Birmingham for many years, and also living in Northern England, I moved to Austin, Texas in 2011.
My studio is based here in Austin. The garments that we make for you are made here by hand, one at a time, by me and a very small team. A few styles (just Marie, Jessica and Lillian) are made in NYC, also one at a time, by hand.
My collection is inspired by both a quest for enduring style and by the rich, precious moments of connection that we experience in our lives. Like the precious items in our wardrobes that we treasure, these moments of connection are meant to last a lifetime.
I can't wait for you to find yourself in my collection.
