“Having lived in all four corners of the U.S., I find inspiration in the beautiful, ever-changing landscape—from the canyons and deserts of the Southwest to the lush forests back East. All the textures and colors found in these landscapes provide me with endless inspiration.”

Like a lot of red-blooded woman, Kristen has always had an appreciation (okay, more like deep love) of handbags. And she’s not necessarily particular on type--high end or low, vintage or new. The common theme is their construction; she’s always looking for pieces that are built well and with a care to detail. While in college, Kristen would procrastinate study time by sitting at her sewing machine making small bags and wallets for friends. Either she got really good at procrastination, or her hobby took off: she started making a living off of her bag-making obsession. Her bags are beautiful, basic and timeless… hand-cut leather is sewn and finished by Kristen… and added into the mix: her lifelong love of all things handbags.
