Hi, I’m Josie and I’m the founder and designer behind Jac+Jae Designs. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband and three small daughters, where I get to be a work from home mother. My girls are my 1st priority and they have always been an inspiration to me! In fact, the branding of Jac+ Jae Designs has everything to do with them and what they mean to me. Jaela is my oldest daughter and she is shy, sweet, and everything she does is done beautifully. She is my Jae bird. My middle daughter Jaclyn is also sweet, and with an extra dose of imagination, she brings energy and playfulness to every room she enters. She is my little Jac rabbit. Our youngest daughter Jamie came when our business was just beginning to take off, and with her kind and hilarious disposition, she reminds me daily of how precious all our children are to us.
The vision that drives my business all started when I was gifted an old sewing machine. I had never sewn before and I had so much to learn. Learning to design and create is something I have always wanted to do, but before this old sewing machine was given to me, I didn’t have the means to carry out my dream. I started with a blanket, and it was love. That first blanket I ever made became my first listing in my then Etsy shop. It amazes me to think that here we are, just two years later and providing blankets to infants and children all over the United States and the rest of the world.
Jac & Jae Designs
We have been a business providing both unique and functional bedding for your little ones since 2016. Jac+Jae Designs is where bohemian style and vintage vibes meet to create something truly special for your children and we feel that this is what sets us apart. The functionality of our product is key- but our vision is not just to offer something functional to new mothers, but to offer quality swaddles and keepsake blankets that are truly unique. This is why we have paired our blankets with the softest and most up to date cotton laces and fringes, which will give any nursery, baby wardrobe, and now home (as we tread the waters with our new versatile fringe blankets!) the boho flare you may be looking for.
Muslin (our thoughtfully curated material)
Our thing is muslin—a woven textile made from 100% cotton that provides and incredible softness and breathability only found in muslin, making it the perfect material for use in children’s bedding. We are a company for mothers of infants and young children and our love for this versatile fabric plays into how much we care for our customer base because we believe that muslin is the best material on the market for motherhood. We use a double layered muslin in all our products, which consists of two single layers tacked together into one lofty layer. The open weave of the fabric is what gives it it’s breathability and soft texture, and allows it to puff up after each wash and gives it it’s cloud-like and heavenly appearance.
