About US

Not for Navigation was born out of a love of travel, road trips, salty air, funky boutiques, boating, and nature. Fusing fashion and functionality, founder Heather Jernegan has created a line of custom-designed bags, pillows and accessories that not only look great, but stand up to the elements - and are 100% customize-able. Pick your favorite location and we'll capture it with a nautical chart or topographical map.


Hand-Crafted in the US

The totes, pillows, and accessories are made with the same love Heather has for the coastal lifestyle she lives. Not For Navigation is headquartered in Essex, MA. All products are proudly crafted by hand in Massachusetts and are sold in boutiques, nautical stores and online.

Salty Style

Having been born into one of New England's largest promotional products companies, Heather was born with design in her blood! Her passion for design, functionality and coastal style keep her designing, developing creating and re-creating pieces for the collection.
