As a young girl, I was given the nickname ’Lina Bean. My first room was my mother's sewing room and at age12 my mother taught me to sew, it soon became my passion.
I created 'Lina Bean to be a modern polished line, that is also functional. ‘Lina Bean products are designed for anyone who wants to have pieces that look and work great effortlessly. ‘Lina Bean is hand-made in Arrington, TN with only the highest quality fabrics available.
All of this goes into offering you ‘Lina Bean...the best for you and your little sprout.
I had the pleasure of working with Ralph Rucci on his Chado line, right out of college. He is America’s first designer since Mainbocher in the 1950’s to show in Paris’ Haute Couture shows. I have been on design teams with Lilly Pulitzer, Anthropologie, and J Crew- all natural stepping stones to my formation of ‘Lina Bean. I graduated from Moore College of Art and Design with a BA in Fashion. After many years working for others, the birth of my first child was time for me to launch my own line. What better than a childhood nickname for a children’s accessories company...’Lina Bean was born in Spring of ‘07.
