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 vintage 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.
