Hello and Welcome!
I’m happy to know that the bags I make help people keep their daily essentials well-organized, whether they’re off for the weekend, commuting to work or traveling the world.
Before I started Jenneng in 2014 I was buying simple totes that were mostly imported, made with cheap materials and would wear thin within months. One day a cashier at the super market was filling my “bring your own bag” with groceries and it tore along the side because the thin fabric had worn out after owning it for only about six months. Frustrating right?
From then on, I vowed to make my own bags. I wanted them to be durable, long lasting, made to get dirty and really loved.
I combined my experience in art, sewing and retail management and started this brand. The first few totes I sold received rave reviews on craftsmanship and the quality of materials I used. I knew I was on the right track. Through the years, I’ve made thousands of bags that have sold online and in person.
Each bag is designed and hand crafted in my small New York City home. I work in very small runs to maintain care and quality of each item while only using durable materials sourced from other small American businesses.
When I’m not sewing and working on shop stuff, I’m hanging out with my husband and baby boy. We try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. My family dreams of living on a few acres in the country tending to a vegetable garden and keeping life simple.
Thank you for being here and supporting my journey as a maker!
