Made in NYC Celebrates Women’s History Month – The Perfect Handbag for Urban Living: Emily Jones

A New York native with the energy of the city running through her blood, Emily Jones’ line of handbags are made in the city, for the city. Creative, innovative, and passionate, she hopes that her woman & minority-owned business will spark greater opportunity and big dreams for young women in NYC and beyond.

 

What does your company make?

We make handbags that are made to stand up to the challenges of urban living, transitioning from work to errands to wild nights out. We believe design should go beyond beauty.

 

We also believe that design should never be at the detriment of the environment or individuals, so we’ve made a commitment to diligently source and produce all of our handbags responsibly. Using as many locally sourced, recycled materials as possible, our bags are made by real New Yorkers, ensuring the highest craftsmanship for our bags and helping our local community thrive.

 

What’s the story behind your business?

I envisioned my first eco-leather handbag, now the double flap crossbody, while attending Parsons School of Design in NYC. Vibrant and outgoing, I wanted to create a bag that would transition seamlessly from daytime commutes to a night out on the town. As an avid heel-wearer, the ability to carry a spare pair of shoes was my idea of simplifying city living.

 

What is your favorite product right now?

Our eye catching triangle crossbody! It zips from handbag to clutch to provide ultimate versatility.
