Founded in 2014, J. Markell is a line of handbags and accessories that celebrates the notion of inconspicuous luxury. Founder/designer Julie Neff created the collection to fill a void in the marketplace for a line of bags that are sleek, modern and have just a hint of opulence. J. Markell combines the rich colors and textures of authentic exotic skins with high quality leather to create pieces that are as versatile as they are beautiful. One of the best things about Julie’s designs is that they can easily transition from day to night, making them ideal for a woman’s busy lifestyle.
A native of West Bloomfield, MI, Julie holds a B.A. degree in Fashion Merchandising. She currently resides in the vibrant and inspirational city of Chicago with her husband and three children.
All J. Markell products are environmentally friendly. Every design is made using by-products of a food source, never harming any animals.
