Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, the creatives behind the highly-covetable women's label ace&jig, describe the birth of their brand as the culmination of "a textile love story." The duo met as design interns and bonded instantly over their love of antique textiles. A decade later, they launched ace&jig with textiles at the very center: each collection begins with fabric as a starting point, dating back to the brand's first collection back in 2009, which was born from a yarn-dye, woven fabric of their own creation.
In the seasons since, the inspiration for subsequent ace&jig garments has arisen from everything from "feedsack bags of antique French linens to Japanese boro quilts."
Vaughan and Wilson's process has resonated with consumers the world over, who flock to the brand for the timeless - and in many cases, seasonless - quality to their wearable, expertly crafted garments.
