About Jack Spade
Jack Spade began in a loft, a warehouse on Warren Street, in 1996. It grew out of an idea Jack Spade and his wife had to make bags for women that were neither overly precious nor boring basics. They believed that useful items, in this cas handbags, could be both utilitarian and stylish. Soon they realised there was a similar need for men's products. So, as their line of woman's bags grew, they started buying waxwear fabrics and heavy canvases to make bags for their friends. Over time they recieved feedback on the function of the bags, made changes, and developed a line of straightforward shapes.
Their first Jack Spade bag was sold to a hardware store in 1997.
