| JENNY HO |
Jenny is the owner, designer and maker of the vegan leather handbag company S E A & P I N E. Everything is made of cruelty-free materials. Every product is designed and handmade by her in Seattle. Through her designs, she pays homage to her childhood in Maui and gratitude to the beauties of the Pacific Northwest. In doing so, she marries coastal vibes with Pacific Northwest style.
Her collections include a Signature Tote series that highlights the places she's been and expressions of her identity and style. The Work and Play collection features multi-functional handbags such as uniquely designed convertible backpacks and versatile clutches and crossbody bags. Her newest collection focuses on sustainability and is one of the first small businesses to design and produce Cactus Leather goods. All in commitment to moving the needle forward toward earth and life-giving fashion, one stitch at a time.
Sea+Pine’s Give Back philosophy is a trifecta of love within these areas: Sustainability, Racial justice, Economic opportunity. You’ll see it infused in her work and in her partnerships.
Design has always been a part of her story. Sewing, teaching, creating...it has brought her joy in so many ways. A former educator, contributing writer, coach and mentor, she thrives on building things for people to love and experiences to enjoy.
Jenny lives in Seattle with her Oahu-born husband, Brett--her favorite person and biggest supporter. They can be found paddle boarding on Alpine Lakes, swimming with sea turtles in Pa'ia and hiking the Cascades with their daughters.
