Fashionable, eco-conscious, ethical, free of animal cruelty, the maker of these stylish handbags wanted to create a brand that was all this and more. So that’s exactly what she did! Her brand is innovative, not only in style but also in looking for ways to minimize its impact on the environment. All materials, down to the 100% recycled PET thread are taken into consideration. Every material must be vegan, eco-friendly, and sourced from a factory with high standards and ethical practices.
The handbags are locally made in California in a fair wage factory in small batches. This ensures that every piece is of superb quality as well as cuts down on waste from unwanted inventory. Finally, all shipping and packing materials are post-consumer recycled and recyclable.
The maker of these exquisite handbags started out in the fashion industry. Interested in a variety of creative pursuits such as ceramics and weaving, she was always attending workshops to learn new techniques. To that end, she spent a year of Saturdays studying hand leather work in San Francisco under Hermès master artisan Beatrice Amblard.
She loved the work, but the animal cruelty and negative environmental impact of leatherwork started getting to her. She decided it was time to take her new skills and strike out on her own. She sees a lot of potential in the world of vegan leather and accessories and has started making her own impact with these stunning and long-lasting handbags.
