about  Jess Nicoles + Erik Holmberg

Jess and Erik met on the internet. But not the way you're thinking. They struck a chord of mutual appreciation on, of all platforms, Instagram, when Erik was only making wallets and Jess was still running a men's neckwear brand. Eventually, a time came when restaurant managing had run its course for Jess, and Erik needed an experienced sewist to help him take his brand to the next level, so the J. Stark you know now was born. The two discovered quickly that their mutual vision for the company was made ever better by their own collaboration. Greater still were the ideas that blossomed with the help of their talented staff. More than just a wife-and-husband team, this is a crew of music lovers and foodies and philanthropists and creatives who work well together to make this brand the best it can be.

At its core, J. Stark is a bag and luggage brand. They make timeless, sturdy things that will be carried with you for a lifetime. And they keep their designs simple. They don’t put a pocket where a pocket doesn’t belong. The result is a product that is aesthetically minimalistic and highly functional.
