Greetings from ace&jig!
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.
We are constantly inspired by our own ever-growing textile collections. At the start of each new season, we sit down with our most exciting finds-from the feedsack bags of antique french linens to japanese boro quilts-and begin to create our own woven story.
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.
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.
SouleMama: Since the last time you were featured on SouleMama, in what ways has your business grown or changed?
ace&jig: Since the last time we have continued to push the boundaries in our yarn-dye woven textile design. We've been experimenting with double-faced singlecloths, a single-ply woven cloth that has a different front and back design. Our Fall Collection also includes our rendition of organza, Shadow, which has a beautiful sheen and silk drape.
We also recently launched ace&jig Bazaar, our line of home goods that includes quilts, pillows, throws and flags. As much as possible we try to reduce waste by using our leftover and scrap textiles in these home goods, whether as patches on a quilt or pillow, or as variegated squares on our decorative flags.
This weekend, ace&jig is generously offering the following gifts to TWO lucky SouleMama readers:
