A daily tennis habit turned into a fashion dilemma for Cortiglia founder Jill LaCorte. Carrying her racquets and gear in the standard fare, oversized, nylon or vinyl, logo-emblazoned tennis bags went against every aesthetic fiber in her body. She tried to repurpose other, more fashionable totes for tennis, but they just weren’t designed for the job. After searching high and low for the perfect bag, Jill realized that if she wanted a beautiful, stylish bag -more of a purse made for tennis – she would have to design it herself. Thus, Cortiglia, LLC was born in 2008.
