"The best part of my job is finding interesting materials and creating new designs--seeing my vision come to life fulfills me as a designer."
Alice might've started collecting vintage kimonos back during her college years, but it wasn't until she made the move from Hawaii (yes, she went to college in Hawaii
) to California that she discovered a creative use for them. She draws inspiration from the designs, themes and colors of her favorite kimonos, and transfers 'em to her earthy leather bags. The east-meets-west influences are readily seen in creations like her Origami Clutch, where Alice arranges the leather just so
, and it has the appearance of folded leather––it's refreshingly simple and built to last.< less
