Passionate people, designing and manufacturing quality Footwear for Little Feet
“Jack & Lily” are real people, with a mother – a Vancouver, Canada mom to be exact – and it started because she knew that children's footwear could be better.
Pregnant with her second child, Brenda Buell was frustrated with the lack of quality in baby footwear and knew she could do better. Over several months Brenda found a leather manufacturer, got hold of some leftover leather from other leather goods and went to work hand-stitching the first Jack & Lily shoes.
Determined and willing to do what it takes, Brenda went door-to-door, showing her baby and toddler shoes to whatever small business would listen. Their response shocked her. “These were mom & pop stores. They rarely took chances on new products but I sold out everything! The desire for quality construction and fashionable, hip design was overwhelming. They begged for more.” Jack & Lily shoes took off from there.
