After years of running a successful designer pillow workroom, Lindsay, owner of Garland Bags, had amassed an impressive remnant collection. She was inspired to make a clutch for herself using some of her favorite fabrics, so she researched and tinkered with various methods and materials before completing a satisfactory prototype. Upon sharing a photo of the clutch she created on social media, Lindsay realized that there were quite a few kindred spirits who, like her, appreciated these exceptional textiles beyond their use in the home. Thus, Garland Bags was born.
Lindsay and her family live in Savannah, Georgia. Her Garland Bags have grown into a coveted collection that are featured in select boutiques and pop-ups across the country, and have a cult following on Instagram where they sell out within hours and days of being made available for purchase. She is a native of Atlanta, a graduate of the University of Georgia, the best wife Travis could ever hope for, and a mother to two phenomenal children.
Emmy is originally from Atlanta, but has lived in Savannah since graduating from Georgia Southern University, in the year none-of-your-business. Emmy is a devoted mother to twin girls. TWINS. TEENAGE TWIN GIRLS. Most people would have entered an insane asylum by now, so Emmy did the next best thing and joined on with Garland Bags. She manages the business’s day to day operations through a complicated system that involves involuntarily waking up at 3am to worry about things she can’t control, filling every spare moment with reviews of the company’s calendar, triple checking that things have been done, and reminding Lindsay of every task she has because she can’t remember anything for herself.
Jana Newland is originally from Statesboro, GA and is a graduate of Georgia Southern University. She came to Garland Bags with a background in banking, and serving as Lindsay’s pro-bono business advisor and unofficial therapist for years. She is the elusive combination of business savvy and creative vision. It’s sickening. Jana is married to her high school sweetheart, and is mother to three beautiful children who have inured her to chaos. Jana could calmly disarm a bomb while crouched in the middle of a mosh pit.
