Our StoryInspired by a passion for fashion and many trips to the fabric store, teenage entrepreneurs Emily Matson and Julianne Goldmark founded Emi Jay in 2009, an accessories brand that has emerged as a leader in producing on-trend hair accessories. Armed with an impeccable sense of style, this fashion-forward design duo embarked into the apparel industry in 2015 with Tee By Emi Jay.
Emily and Julianne run their thriving business alongside their mothers, while being full-time college students. As they balance running a company and classes, Emily and Julianne remain the creative visionaries behind the brand, which continually grows and sets the latest trends of functional and fashionable hair accessories and apparel.
With a rapidly expanding product line and collaborations with Whole Foods, SJP Collection, SJP Stash, ALO Yoga, Kate Somerville and Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James Company – and the list continues to grow – Emi Jay remains the leading hair accessories brand. And with a deeply rooted commitment to providing premium accessories, all Emi Jay hair ties are handmade in Los Angeles; our apparel is made in Los Angeles with entirely sustainable fabrics.
Since the brand's inception in 2009, philanthropy has been at the core of Emi Jay. Each year, Emi Jay donates 20% of all company profits to charity. In early 2014, Emi Jay committed to a 5 year partnership with the renowned Children's Hospital Los Angeles. CHLA is committed to creating hope and building healthier futures for the patients and families in their care.
