Jules Handbags is a whimsical American accessories brand founded in 2019 by Juliane Randazzo. Headquartered in Red Bank, NJ, Jules features a full line of handbags, accessories, and beach bags for women and men. Distinguished by bold colors and unique prints inspired by nature, hobbies, and travel to local and global icons, Jules Handbags are for everyone who loves eye-popping art and distinctive design!
💚Jules focuses on creating unique, vibrant scenes which begin as collage art, using mixed media such as ribbon, crystals, and silk held together by a trusty glue gun. The collage is then digitally refined and printed on napa leather, vegan leather, and canvas.
💚Jules process is all about the print! Prototypes begin with a base of colored foam or sparkling glitter paper and are hand embellished with flowers, crystals, sequins, or anything that can be secured with a glue gun. The vibrant, whimsical scenes shown below are digitized by a skilled graphic artist to prepare for printing. We use napa leather, vegan leather, and satin, and are made by hand in the United Kingdom. Shorely by Jules, our beach line, is made by hand with 100% recycled polyester in the USA. All fabrics were chosen for strength, durability, and their exceptional ability to show off all the vibrant colors in Jule's prints.
💚 Jules Evolution
Juliane began creating wild hats to wear to an annual Kentucky Derby Party at a Jersey Shore restaurant in 2013 where her first hat, a bold tribute to the horse Verrazano, drew tons of attention and accolades from other attendees. Juliane even won prizes for best hat, an honor that continued throughout subsequent years’ parties. In 2019, Juliane decided to couple her degree from New York's prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology with her creativity to launch more of an everyday product. Since she has always loved bags, she started there. Jules currently has created 7 prints, and an expanding product line of handbags, wallets, belts, keyrings, as well as beach bags and accessories.
💚As an animal, ocean, and all-around earth lover, environmentally friendly and ethical workplaces are paramount when choosing vendors to collaborate with. No fast fashion here! Jules only selects partners using textiles manufactured and constructed in a responsible way that acknowledges and accounts for their ethical, environmental, and socioeconomic impact. Jules's entire line is made by hand in England and the USA. Shorely by Jules is completely vegan.
