Jillian Darnell
John Met Betty Handbags

Jillian Darnell has been designing one of a kind vegan leather bags, totes and clutches for over 10 years. Originally from Toronto Canada, she studied fine arts at The University of Waterloo and Fashion Design at George Brown College in Toronto. Her interest in design and leatherwork began while working in the leather industry in Acton Ontario. Jillian now resides on Bainbridge Island in Washington State with her husband, two boxers and two cats. All handbags are created with eco-friendly faux leathers and new and vintage fabrics from start to finish by Jillian in her home studio.

Elevator Pitch: My name is Jill, I create retro handbags inspired by midcentury design using eco-friendly, recycled materials. The materials I use in my handbags are sourced from companies that produce within the United States using eco-friendly practices and are combined with recycled/salvaged materials. John Met Betty is also an animal friendly company, all faux leathers used in production are vegan and made with recycled materials. I believe in creating stylish functional products that have minimal impact on living creatures as well as the environment.
