One of the things we love most about Charleston is its flourishing creative scene. There are so many talented makers, artisans, and designers in this town, we decided to put together a quick holiday gift guide featuring a few of our faves! We also included some handmade Jahde pieces that are perfect for any budget.
Happy gifting and happy holidays!
Our brand-new Holiday Mini-Collection features a limited-run of new colors and styles, including these super fun tassels in our signature Jahde green. Prices range from $70 - $120, and can be shopped here!
Ever since our Sip & Shop with Jonny, we have been OBSESSED with his handcrafted makeup line. The lipsticks contain conditioners (vitamins A, C & E, along with almond oil) and come in tons of colors (we love the Lola and Cranberry). At just $19, they're the perfect stocking stuffer.
These framed photography prints are perfect for the art lover in your life. The latest collection of framed pieces by local artist Leigh-Ann Beverley includes gorgeous shots of vineyards around the globe, major touring musicians, and stunning scenic views from her travels near and far. Leigh-Ann's work has been featured in Wine & Spirits Magazine and Music Life Magazine, and now's your chance to bring her talent into your home. Browse her work here and shoot her an email to see which prints are still available.
We developed the Queen Street candle with local woman-owned business, Scentervention. It's hand-poured, made of 100% soy wax, and features scents like Oak Moss, Amber, Leather (of course!), Grapefruit, and Lavender. Great for loved ones, clients, or the hard-to-buy-for friend. Order yours here.
Proud Mary is one of our favorite local woman-owned brands! They partner with small artisan groups in developing countries, using traditional methods to design modern clothing and accessories. This Knit Huipile Top is 100% alpaca and made by artisans in Bolivia...and we seriously cannot get enough of it. Scrap the mall sweaters and gift this beautiful and ethically-made top instead.
If you made it to our Sip & Shop with local woodworker Ashley Harwood, you know just how badass these ornaments are. She is a master wood turner, crafting these intricate spindles and combining them with sea urchins to create the perfect Charleston ornament. You'll want to leave it hanging all year-round. Prices range from $37 - $54.
The Church Key Wallet is one of our favorite essentials from the Fall Collection. It's the perfect way to carry your cards or coins. Completely hand-cut and assembled, featuring a handmade beaded tassel and brass keyring attachment. Get your hands on one here!
Another local brand we LOVE! Ink Meets Paper uses age-old letterpress techniques to design hand-made paper goods and stationery. Their Social Stationery card collections are the perfect way to send a love note, say hello to a friend, or just live out the motto "text less, write more." We want one of every set in our stocking, please!
Okay, so not technically a local product, but Andy recently got a manicure from the amazing team at Gibson Hair & Makeup and immediately became obsessed with Oribe's Lacquer High Shine nail polish. It's an super long-wear polish that delivers chip-resistant, fade-proof shine....AKA our leather tools have finally met their match! You can purchase it locally at Gibson for $32!
Buying a gift for the boho-chic home? Sunwoven is another woman-owned creative business; the owner Erin is known for her incredible hand woven wall hangings, but we also love these new pillows! Each one is hand woven and hand sewn and takes about 5-8 hours to complete. They're the perfect way to give the gift of handmade.
Last but not least, the Jahde Made George Cuff. We overlay a raw brass cuff with leather, and top it with contrasting hand-cut fringe for a pop of color. Like everything in our shop, it's completely made by hand in Charleston. Comes in three different color variations and can be scooped up here!
The holiday season is officially in full-swing, which means we've got a packed calendar of events. See what's coming up at the Charleston studio and around the country!
Thank you so much to all of you who came to our VIP Launch Party on October 4th! It's been a crazy few months of hard work, but thanks to collaborations with some brilliant people, the opening of Jahde Leather Atelier was a huge success.
Shout-outs to these amazing people who helped make the night so incredible:
Harold's Cabin and Goat Sheep Cow for the delicious food, The French Eclectic for the stunning vintage furniture, Arielle Simmons for the gorgeous photography, and Duolan Li (DJ Auntie Ayi) for keeping us dancing all night.
