JILL MILAN: After years of searching for classic, luxury handbags that were leather-free, Jill Fraser founded Jill Milan with her partner, Milan Lazich in 2010. Each bag is made in Italy by artisans who have a heritage of crafting the best luxury accessories in the world. Every bag is a work of art, an individual creation designed for modern women. Each bag is sewn by hand and the metal work are all hand made. Entirely free of leather, fur and animal-derived materials, Jill Milan Handbags are made from natural, luxurious materials such as velvet, ultra suedes and buttery soft faux-leather. Jill Milan's designer, Maya Stewart, is an award-winning Native American designer whose works have been displayed at the Smithsonian. Maya worked at Judith Leiber before coming to Jill Milan.
