ACE & JIG AW14

      
ace&jig is a textile love story based in Brooklyn NY, and is composed or Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, who met more than 10 years ago as fashion design interns, and instantly bonded over their shared love of antique textiles. After becoming mothers they both felt it was time to work together again, thus ace&jig was born. ace&jig is not just for the littles, their main focus is women's clothing. I stumbled upon this delicious label through instagram as someone I follow, I can't remember who, had bought a little dress for their little girl and I instantly loved it: This lead me to look it up and I absolutely love their passion for what they do: it shines through in their pieces which are timeless, comfortable and beautiful. This mama needs to get herself a dress or skirt. Or both!!
The production is so fascinating and you should take a look at the link below. ace&jig work with indian partners who share their core values and practice the holistic kaizen philosophy of continuing to improve. Not only do they provide free childcare, they also use reclaimed water to grow organic produce for their employees. 

     "our search for the ideal manufacturer led us to India, where we found experienced textile specialists weaving on ancient wooden hand looms. several times a year we travel there and work one-on-one with weavers to create our authentic fabrics.
our colors and silhouettes shift, but each collection is anchored by the stripe. we believe yarn-dye stripes, whether created by alternating textures or through pops of saturated color, are an iconic and timeless medium, and an endless source for reinvention. "
