Meet Jacquezel. A handmade lifestyle leather goods brand and design studio from North Borneo, Malaysia. Founded by Chloe Moin and Darren Chong in 2014, their aim is to bring leather goods that are timeless, minimal, contemporary, and most importantly, affordable, to the market.
To date, everything from Jacquezel (JQZ) are proudly designed and hand crafted by Chloe Moin and Rachel Tan (a partner that joined them in 2016). Chloe is a 25 year-old Financial Economics graduate from University Malaysia Sabah. Financial Economics was never an interest to her as she's always dreamt about being in the fashion industry. She loves observing and designing bags, and she's also a big fan of leather. Right after she graduated, she took a giant leap of faith and decided to pursue her childhood dream. With no fashion background, no connections and broke, she decided to start by teaching herself how to create bags and 'took' making classes from the Internet. Stitching came naturally to her as it was always her hobby. Chloe gets most of her design inspirations from Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Coco Chanel and her grandma's vintage leather handbags.
JQZ offers varies products from bags (totes and clutches) to desk accents and leather accessories such as journal covers, iPad sleeves, card holders and more. JQZ also provides 'labeling' service to its customers. JQZ allows customers to have their names stamped onto their products so they would own something unique and personal.
