JEAN ELIZABETH is a Philadelphia contemporary luxury accessories brand that incorporates signature pleated details in each of our handcrafted leather designs pre-launching in 2019 at Philly Fashion Week. Our signature pleated tote known as the LOLA GRACE was our first product we geared towards chic, sophistication and timelessness. The brand name was inspired by my bellaboosta grandmother Jean Elizabeth who spoke Yuddish among many other languages, was a nurse, baker, gourmet cook, had a green thumb and loved to travel the world returning with bell souvenirs which is why we chose to create the logo in remembrance of her.
Our brand identity was inspired by my grandmother’s style, elegance, and other 1950’s Victorian iconic timeless fashions. In 2008, while a junior at Virginia State University as a way to cope with the death of my father I began sewing as a therapeutic outlet to cope and heal. The JEAN ELIZABETH woman is chic and sophisticated who leads an active lifestyle and appreciates handcrafted quality craftsmanship. In March 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic our company volunteered as a sewer handcrafting masks for our local community frontline medical doctors during a time the world was shut down.
