Visit Crystalyn Kae's handbag workshop in Brooklyn's Industry City

Posted by on

Now open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (and additional times by appointment) this Fall!

After the success of the Industry City Open Studio weekend last May, we have had lots of requests to do it again!  So starting in August 2019, we will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and other times by appointment. (Just get in touch!)

Visit behind the scenes at our small handbag factory where you can come see us in action: making our bags and experience first-hand how we draft our patterns, cut our materials, sew the bags and set the hardware all on site.

You can also shop for bags, and score a deal on our factory seconds. 

Do you accept credit cards at your workshop?

Yes! In addition to cold, hard cash, we also accept credit cards!  You can purchase with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

What is Industry City?

Industry City is a 6 million-square-foot mixed-use complex comprised of 16 buildings spanning 35 acres on the waterfront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The property’s ownership – led by Belvedere Capital, Jamestown and Angelo Gordon & Co. – is transforming the complex, while cultivating a diverse tenant mix that fuses today’s burgeoning innovation economy with traditional manufacturing and artisanal craft. To date, the transformation has included over $400 million of infrastructure improvements, the addition of destination courtyards, experience-driven dining, retail and other amenities and event programing. This work is paving the way toward a vibrant and diverse community of forward-thinking companies that support good-paying jobs for workers across skill and experience levels. Since the new partnership was forged in August 2013, businesses based at Industry city have grown by an average of 100 jobs per month, increasing employment from 1,900 jobs in 2013 to 7,500 jobs today.
