Around this time last year, I had just had a baby - in a pandemic - with a surprise birth diagnosis of Down syndrome.
I was feeling overwhelmed with trying to keep things running with Purse & Clutch, especially after having overproduced Embossed Leather Wristlets for a non-profit partnership that was less than successful.
And y'all stepped up. I asked for help & you responded with such enthusiastic generosity I was, and continue to be, blown away with this community that's formed around the brand I've been building for the past 10 years.
So it's about time that I create a (virtual) space for us to gather. To share more of our artisans stories, my design process, your feedback.
And, of course, early access to new styles & limited edition small batch products.
I'm so grateful for the ways in which y'all have continually partnered with me to help create & sustain employment for our artisan partners in Mexico & Ethiopia.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I look forward to getting to know you even better in our Insiders Community.
