From my home in the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico, I make each Jolie product by hand, with the help of two energetic little boys, a patient husband, and two lazy dogs. Somehow, I manage to come up with new bags each week. Though I'm lucky to come from a long line of talented sewers, I only recently began making things on my own. I wanted to find a way to work with fabric, make things, and be able to work from home. (I left an office in 1999 and I never want to go back!) Thanks to my darling hubby, and two boys too young to protest, Jolie Designs has become an outlet for my creative inclinations. The inspiration for Jolie Designs (and the model for the Jolie Girl logo), comes from my sister, Jolie Wingo, who died in 1997 at the age of 25. I continually look for ways to honor and celebrate her memory--what could be more perfect than pretty handbags bearing her name? She would love these products, and I hope a little bit of her exuberance and joy for life comes to you when you buy a Jolie Bag.
