Jill’s a Brooklyn maker with some well-established roots (yep, she’s fifth generation)—and a major penchant for travel, art and adventure. Her mission is to create timeless, heirloom-quality bags that can keep up and also have a sense of style and sophistication. The process starts with sketches that include swatches and hardware. Then the “mechanics” develop samples that address stress-points, stitching and lining, paying meticulous attention to detail. The result is a gorgeous bag with a less-is-more aesthetic and simple yet well-thought-out details that stand the test of time. Or, rather, the test of long-endured adventure.
