Ace & Jig
Ace & Jig is a textile love story. Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson met more than ten years ago as fashion design interns and instantly bonded over their shared loved of antique textiles. In 2009 they set out to create a seasonless women’s collection from one fabrication: their very our own yarn-dye, woven fabric. They wanted to create timeless garments from their 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.
At the start of each new season they sit down with the most exciting finds—from the feedsack bags of antique french linens to japanese boro quilts—and begin to create the ace&jig woven story. The search for the ideal manufacturer led them to India, where they found experienced textile specialists weaving on ancient wooden hand looms. Several times a year ace&jig travel there and work one-on-one with weavers to create authentic fabrics. Colors and silhouettes shift, but each collection is anchored by the stripe. ace&jig 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.
