Billy + Jess
Deep in the heart of Texas
While Jess was born in Texas, Billy "got here as fast as he could" as they say. Each having moved around the country more than their fair share, Billy and Jess met in San Francisco, and before too long Billy brought Jess back home.
A graphic designer and screenprinter by trade, Billy’s work takes on organic forms while Jessica’s background in fine art photography gives her a strong eye for framing, precision and composition. Son of a Sailor was born out of their shared love of thoughtful design and the ways it can spark joy in the lives of others.
With the belief that a rising tide raises all ships, they work hard to preserve the art of the handmade. Much of the inspiration behind Son of a Sailor's products comes from the application of color, pattern and geometry to materials with a rich history and story.
In our shop, you’ll find jewelry and lifestyle goods ranging from beaded earrings and bracelets to painted keychains, playful home goods and men’s leather accessories—all of which are designed with the intent of bringing happiness to life’s daily necessities.
