Jayli Imports is a small family owned business. Jayli began, as we say, "Out of the Dust of the Dead". We started out by selling hippie clothes at Grateful Dead concerts and farmers markets. To this day we still attend festivals to share our wares. Jayli has always cared for people, product and professional standards.
The journey first started after Jay, from Northern California, met Liora, from Cape Town, South Africa, in India, while both were travelling the world. Soon after, Jayli was born. We started out by selling our wares at farmers markets and Grateful Dead shows. Before we knew it, we had our first wholesale account and we grew from there. We still attend and sell our designs at festivals across the West Coast each summer, mainly because we enjoy it so much, as do our two young daughters.
We've travelled to Nepal and Thailand every year for 18 years and have worked with the same manufacturers for that time. All the factories with which we work are small family owned and run businesses, just like ours. We have developed great personal and working relationships with our manufacturers, their employees and their families.
