Jill may have been born in the UK, but New Zealand has converted this one-time "pom" in to a true blue Kiwi passionate about its people, landscape and culture. Growing up with a mother who sewed for all the family, Jill was destined for a career filled with creativity. In 1989 Jill began working from home producing silk products which she sold through craft shows. Now Jill and an in-house staff of five create an array of products from a small rural factory supplying both the local and international market. With a growing number of local manufacturers being forced to go off shore, Jill Main NZ prides itself with being New Zealand made and sourcing local raw materials and supplies where possible. With a design team and screen printing facility on site, Jill Main has also managed to create pieces that are unique and special by remaining true to our roots and having a hand made feel and look to our products. "The New Zealand landscape is our main source of inspiration and is evident when you see the choice of tactile fabrics and imagery used in our designs. Each range reflects the natural beauty that can only be found in our precious country - Aotearoa".
