How was this company started?
By accident! The owner and lead designer, Kay, made the first bag for herself. She wanted a Louis Vuitton that was more unique than everyone else’s but still wanted to ensure the luxury of the bags name. The first bag was a Saint Cloud MM with the highest quality leather fringe. She posted a picture of the finished product on Instagram and was contacted by fashion designer, Leigh Hajovsky. The fist bag was sold to Leigh and overnight, the trend turned into a business.
