"The reaction to our new Spring Collection was fantastic," says Jamie Lauren, Pres/Designer of Jamie Lauren Designs, "we picked up 15 new clients." Lauren's custom one-of-a-kind products include handbags, vibrant ottomans and small furnishings made from authentic textiles from around the world.

“The reaction to our Spring Collection was fantastic,” says Jamie Lauren, president and chief designer of Jamie Lauren Designs, (http://www.JamieLaurenDesigns.com) a company she founded three years ago. This is Lauren’s third season attending the NYNow show where her products were presented in Handmade Global Design. “We picked up 15 new retail customers,” says Lauren, “which includes a mix of large and small speciality boutique retailers from across the country.”

From oversized shoulder bags, finished with her signature hand-braided leather handle, to stunning oversize round and square ottomans, and colorful one-of-a-kind throw pillows - perfect for any room in the house. Lauren’s vibrant and clever transformation of traditional textiles into modern day pieces has caught the attention of buyers, retailers and consumers. In fact, Jamie Lauren products have been featured in Architectural Digest, Boulder and Cherry Creek Lifestyle Magazines, and other fashion and furniture industry media.

“The seven day, two country scouting trip paid off,” says Lauren, referring to her recent sourcing expedition in December where she trekked to remote villages in Peru and Guatemala in search of these hand-made fabrics.
