PEEK INSIDE OUR WORKSHOP

For nearly 20 years, Crystalyn Kae has created original handcrafted bags and accessories made from ethically­ sourced and reclaimed materials here in the USA.


Founded in Seattle in 2001 by Crystalyn Kae Brennan, who had become disillusioned by mass-production in the fast-­fashion world. In the era of Prada knockoffs and cookie-cutter Coach bags, she saw a need for unique yet practical bags that didn't look like everyone else's.

Her first collection of handbags was made from a warehouse stash of vintag plaid pants, which she sold to stores in Seattle, San Francisco, and New York. Ahead of her time, in sustainable fashion, Crystalyn had unknowingly established herself as a pioneer in the sustainable fashion movement.

Crystalyn Kae Accessories is one of the few companies in the world that incorporates up-cycling practices into their design process. We create for those with a socially conscious style and a passion for creating stories of their own.


Crystalyn's bags can be purchased here on her website, by visiting her Seattle studio, and at boutiques across the USA. 

 

 

 

  

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is a word that can get overused, but to us it means striking the balance of using the best materials available, making long-lasting products, that will make the least impact on our planet.


We consider:
l) how our designs ore made

2) what materials they're made from
3) who makes them
4) how long they'll lost

WORK(WO)MANSHIP

We ore a woman-owned company making high­ quality, reliable bogs that fit into busy women's lifestyles.


We believe in paying women a fair wage, sourcing materials from other women-owned businesses
and mentoring the next generation of female entrepreneurs through internships and speaking engagements.

MADE WITH LOVE

All of our bags start and finish in our Seattle studio, where we also offer customizations and repairs of our bags.

We are committed to local manufacturing and personally collaborate with sewing contractors in New York City's Garment Center, and Seattle's SoDo neighborhood.
