BEHIND THE BRAND
Jemidee is a brand created by Southern Highlands-based designer and maker Ebony Sheppard. The name is borrowed from Ebony’s grandparent's farm, where in her childhood, her family gathered in abundance. Now residing on the farm with her husband Jake, and son Louie, she is inspired to dream big and create relentlessly with a backdrop of wide open space.
The granddaughter of a dressmaker on both sides, Ebony’s passion for sewing is one that has been passed down through the generations. A creative soul, ethical enthusiast and devoted designer, Ebony began creating as a hobby which has now become her lifeblood.
Jemidee’s pieces are the result of hard work and days of toil. To minimise environmental impact Ebony strives to use - where possible - vintage and recycled materials. A core belief of the brand is the promotion of slow fashion, to create timeless pieces to be enjoyed over the years to come.
