About Jean


Jean Jones in the studio


I'm an American designer with a maker's background.
I've been designing and sewing garments since I was in grade school, and I worked as a production weaver right out of college. I launched my first label, Jean Jones Handwovens, when I was 25, and then went on to develop my current independent fashion label, Jean Jones, from there.
Next year I will have been in business for 30 years!
I'm originally from Birmingham, Alabama, where my family has lived for 5 generations. After living there for many years, and also living in textile-rich 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 by hand, one at a time, by me and a very small team.
My collection is inspired by enduring style, the kind of style that lasts. Style that's not trendy or easy come, easy go. I focus on wearability, quality materials and craftsmanship, and the small details that bring you delight when you wear your pieces.
I can't wait for you to find yourself in my collection.
