Jess Brown has always been inspired by beautiful textiles. She began making dolls for her children 13 years ago using old cashmere sweaters and antique remnants. As a committed flea market goer, she would search for amazing antique pieces, trims, buttons and findings.This has now all come together as a small line of one of a kind and hand made rag dolls. Jess works in her studio in Petaluma, California with a small group of local hand work artists to create each doll. Each doll is completely unique and cut to order. Jess also collaborates with several designers, using scrap remnants left over from a current season cutting. Jess lives in Petaluma, California with her children Stella and Tiger and her husband Eric.
