One Acorn founder Jenny Ekberg Besser, resides in Boston¹s Beacon Hill with
her husband Jeb, their roving ragdoll Phoebe and ceramic dog Preble. This young designer credits her creativity and passion for design to a childhood love of drawing and art, as well as her designer mother – its in the genes. Educated in public policy and costume design at Brown University and holding a masters in graphic design from Boston University, Jenny has found a way to meld her passions for business and art first in a line of hip and elegant handbags and now in her whimsical and practical infant line.
“I wanted to create a line of icons that both children and adults would find amusing and interesting, and perhaps even inspire a similar passion for art and design in others,” explains Jenny. As for the line’s name One Acorn, this comes from Jenny’s maiden name, which means Oak in Swedish and from her love of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote, “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”
