OUR CRAFT


There’s freedom in every bag.

I believe in the liberty to follow our dreams. To live an effortlessly adventurous life in a thoughtful environment.

That’s why my team and I showing up every day to create an All-American company that doesn’t just talk about freedom – we cultivate it.

Thoughtfully Sourced

During my initial design process, sourcing premiere cork fabric was priority one. My choice had to check all of the boxes……luxuriously soft yet durable and long-lasting, skillfully harvested and ethically fabricated.

After 2 toilsome years of research and sampling, California and Portugal collided in a coffee shop in Malibu and, boom, all of my cork dreams came true.

My exact source is kept on the down-low {Do you blame me?} but I can tell you that my small but mighty PETA-Certified vegan Portuguese company checked all of the boxes. I truly believe that it's the best in the world!!!!

Perfectly Refined

I'm all about Earth friendly partners. That’s why my leather details require a tannery that uses the most natural, eco-friendly processes in the industry. I have that in Wickett & Craig.

Creating US jobs since 1867, this premiere US tannery perfected the labor-intensive craft of vegetable tanning, the use of bark and other vegetable tannins to naturally tan hide. Producing superior leathers of refined quality, they are only 1 of 2 veg tanneries in the country!

Quality Handcrafted

Having carefully chosen materials commands quality hand-craftsmanship. I knew that craftsmanship would be found right here in the US. I was correct.

In business since 1985, Waterbury Leatherworks spent the first 6 years crafting for Dooney & Bourke. {Talk about quality!} With a whopping 90+ years of combined experience in crafting quality leather goods, Ernest, Russ and their family of crafters {including two adorable dogs} believe that no detail is too small. And, so do I. I'm a big fan of their skills, and know that you will be, too.
