“Throughout the many years that I have known Jackie, I have been impressed with her professionalism and cutting-edge creativity that she brings to her designs. If you are looking for one of a kind creations that make a huge statement, you need look no further than Jackie’s Leather Waves.”

Julie Carmen, Actress, Malibu CA

O, Jackie (vs. Jackie O.), I lOve the hat!! Thank you profusely, it’s coming to NYC tomorrow. It feels so COZY, like a teddy bear on my brain. I love you.

Since I met Jackie in 1994 at her Leather Waves shop when it was still at Cross Creek, she’s made me a forest green winter coat; a kid leather baby blue car coat and A-line 60s dress; a black leather and linen evening gown; perfectly fitting leather pants and numerous purses with fun fabric linings. I like spending my money supporting a local master craftswoman. Jackie makes custom wallets, belts, hats & key chains. Plus she’s a true Malibu treasure.

Helen H. Therapist, Orange County, CA.

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I have enjoyed meeting you and “having-a-ball” with you and the creativity that goes on in “inventing” my clothes. It is, in a sense, a way of inventing ourselves and discovering ourselves and discovering who we really are, and showing that, in some way, to the world by what we wear.

You are a wonderful and kind soul.


L.L., Malibu, CA.

“I tried on the chaps and vest that you made for me, for Michael and he said “It’s Bitchen”. He really dug the outfit and said it was perfect for riding on the bike! Being that I haven’t been on a Harley before, I’m really glad that I trusted your design ideas!


J. Olsson, Miami Records, Sweden

Hi Jackie! As you can see, it’s a faked record cover. The tracks listed are a bunch of 1980′s songs that are recommended by Fredrik and Gustaf at Miami. The image is a semi-hidden extra feature. I liked putting your image on the album because it captures a lot of the eighties – the white pants, the big blonde hair, etc.

Fred Segal, Fashion Retailer and Entrepreneur, Malibu, CA

“You do an exceptionally fine design and quality job with your leather and you know how to service your customer.It is a great pleasure to watch your success and growth.”

In my 38 years I have never been so excited about a pair of pants!! I have never been able to find a perfect fit until now. I’m ready for all my pants to be made by Jackie at Leather Waves-ONE IS NOT ENOUGH!


J. Noel, Playa Del Rey, CA

Just a little note to thank you for designing and making my elegant outfit for the Calgary Stampede. I still can’t believe that when I came to you with my idea of what I wanted, you created something which was not only what I had envisioned but surpassed my expectations. You are truly and artist. I received many compliments at the various parties we attended. I actually wore it to 3 different functions. I plan to wear it a lot.
Thank you again Jackie – You are amazing!


H. Ziehm, Film Producer, Malibu CA

My custom coat fits so well and is so warm that I look forward to cold weather days because they give me a good reason to wear it. 


F. Heinemann, Doctor, Malibu CA

You are indeed a person of many talents. Your sense of design and color is a wonderful gift, and the fact that you bring joy to others through your creative abilities is a wonderful thing. My beautiful red coat and terrific blue pants – such vibrant tones of leather – never cease to give me a glow of happiness when I wear them.


M. Kim, Accountant, Malibu CA 

Just wanted to send you a quick note and tell you how much I’m loving my suede pants and my leather pants. They fit perfectly and are even more comfortable than my old jeans! This is my first experience with custom-made clothing and I think I’m already sold on it. There is something special about the clothes custom-made to your body. You feel more of an ownership and closeness with your clothes. And of course the fact that no one else owns the same piece makes you feel that much special.

I just moved to Malibu few months ago and I am so happy to have found a real jewel in Malibu! You made the whole experience very enjoyable for me. You helped me to voice out what I was looking for and invited me to participate in the process of making it come alive. And in the end you made me look at the leather material in whole new angle.

You got me Jackie. I’m sure I will see you again soon.

T. Love, Vintner, Santa Barbara, CA

I have known Jackie and been a customer (as has my entire family, including my dogs for custom halters) since 1982 when she was in her wonderful shop in the old Malibu Country Mart. Not only does Jackie have the most exquisite taste, she is always ready to customize even the smallest detail to suit her customers & make them happy. Her talent and artistry is evident in her work. She has made me everything from formal wear to purses with showstopping results. Go see her – you will be thrilled that you did.


Scott, Artist, Los Angeles CA


G. Gilliland, Restauranteur & Philanthropist

Jackie Robbins is one talented lady. Her work with leather is amazing. She has made me fantastic bags and belts. She even took a silver concho belt I never wore and used it as decoration on a purple suede bag. Custom phone holders, dog collars, whats next Jackie? And she is a really nice person as well. Jackie donates to my animal rescue programs too.


 C. Moss, Artist & Activist, Malibu CA

Jackie, like her creations, is a sacred gift to Malibu..and a legend which has grown in grace and beauty. We are blessed to have her wide woman artist spirit!

I just opened up my box and I gotta say, your photos definitely don’t do it justice!  You did such an awesome job on it!  Thank you so much for all of the time, design work, and hunting down of buckles that you did on it. I cannot thank you enough. It fits absolutely perfect and is exactly what I have been looking for. The quality of the strap is amazing.


L. M. Encino, CA


D. Walters, Templeton CA 

I just got the Man Bag.  Great job Jackie.  Thanks so much for a job well done.  One of the goals was to make a bag that did not look like a women’s purse.  You accomplished this with great style.    


G. Chang, Composer, Malibu CA


V. Henriquez, Allen Texas

Making the decision to hire someone you have never met ,to do something you know nothing about through the internet is scarce.

I took a chance, and in the end Iam completely satisfied and my needs are fulfilled beyond.

After one conversation with Jackie she impressed me with her confidence, and her level of professionalism.

The skirt is PERFECT, and my needs are met. Not only do I feel I got my money’s worth, but to own something that you, and someone else’s craft created is priceless.

Thanks Again for your expertise, professionalism and most of all your efficiency. This is truly your NICHE!

I just wanted to thank you again for my oh so beautiful bag!!!! I had three compliments on it on Sunday alone, and passed out two of your cards to admirers. I can’t believe how perfect it is, and is everything I hoped and imagined it would be. It was so kind of you to sew it for me, something handmade is precious and unique. I’m sure I’ll always love it.

Ciao bella, I love your leather pants and my wife enjoys all of your dresses, and one of them bought many years ago was a real attraction at the Lyric in Chicago. It has been a while since I came to your store on top of the hill in Malibu, but if I come back to LA I promise I will come and visit.
