ACE AND JIG || CLOUD JUMPER
ace&jig is a textile love story. in 2009, we set out to create a seasonless women's collection from one fabrication: our own yarn-dye, woven fabric. we wanted to create timeless garments from our own textile designs, as interesting in texture as in color and pattern. effortless clothing that could be worn in many ways, for many years.
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 indian partners share our core values and practice the holistic kaizen philosophy of continuing to improve. not only do they provide free childcare, but they also use reclaimed water to grown organic produce for their employees.
ace&jig is based in brooklyn, new york, and is composed of cary vaughan and jenna wilson, who met more than ten years ago as fashion design interns and instantly bonded over their shared loved of antique textiles. after cary gave birth to daughter alice and jenna had her son james, they felt the time had come to collaborate again. thus, ace&jig was born.
