Jill Vidal Raines, CPCE
Chief Linen Wrangler and Owner

Jill is originally from College Station and moved to Houston when she got a job with Pfizer. She loves that Houston has no zoning laws! EB has such a wide variety of linens, but her favorite has to be the Glacial Block. This linen reminds her of her sons who enjoy their freedom of playing the game Minecraft until fatigued. If Jill was not our Queen of Linens, she would be a Flood Insurance Adjuster or a Prison Inmate. If she could be anywhere in the world, she would be at home or a theme park.

Fun Fact: Jill started her business right out of her garage!



Courtney Richmond
Senior Office and Design Maestro

As an Air Force kid, Courtney moved around a lot but would call Wichita, Kansas her hometown. She came to Houston because of her husband’s job and loves that there is so much to do here! There are so many great linens, but her favorites are the Crimson Glitz or Cranberry Velvet. Courtney is so caring, so she would be a nanny or a preschool teacher if she was not a linen expert. If she was anywhere in the world, she would be traveling all of Europe with her husband. 

Fun Fact: She loves theater and is the Props Mistress for Centre Stage Theatrical School in Kingwood which puts on awesome shows!


Ashley Anderson
Senior Sales and Design Manager

Ashley was born and raised in Huffman in Northeast Houston. She is a huge Oklahoma Sooner fan, but is an SFA Alum.  If she was not a linen expert, she would choose to do something in Fashion. Textiles in general are just her jam. If she could travel anywhere in the world, she'd go to Greece! 

Fun Fact: Ashley's favorite linen changes hourly



Janie Cuevas
Logistics Manager

Janie was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but has lived in Houston for all her life. She loves the diversity, dining, and things to do in the city. Her favorite linen is the Charcoal Creation. If she was not a linen expert, she would be a personal shopper - just give her your list and a credit card! if she could be anywhere in the world, she would be relaxing on the beach in Seaside, Florida and sipping on a Pina Colada.

Fun Fact: Her pet peeve is dirty dishes left in the sink.
