After graduating, from FIDM in Knitwear Design and working in the fashion industry in LA, owner and designer Jess Reese and moved back to her home state, Utah. After moving back she decided to take a chance and start her own knitwear brand. As this idea developed, it seemed only natural to start small. She took that very literally and started making knit clothing for children. Now a year into growing James Street she is excited to expand into sweaters for women. James Street's mission is to make sustainable, well made knits that are unique and timeless.
