Two years ago, when I received the call that I was going to be meeting with Gump's to show my line, I was actually quite nervous mainly due to their legendary status, afterall Gump's is San Francisco's unique gifts and luxury home decor destination.
A prominent fixture, the luxury American home furnishings and home décor retailer was founded in 1861 first as a mirror and frame shop by Solomon Gump and his brother, Gustav.
In the 1960's Gump's housed fashion brands like Oscar de la Renta, Halston and the creme de la creme of fashion during that time. Today, endless customers have wonderful stories about their first visit to Gump's. Brides dream of registering for Hermes china, ladies purchase their latest jewels for their collection to gentlemen purchasing the latest art. Gump's is no ordinary retailer, it's one with a vast past and has moved to iconic status. As Jendarling approaches our two year anniversary with Gump's, we look forward to the years to come designing beautiful and luxurious bags for their clientele.
