We are thrilled that everyone who uses our handbags and accessories knows that they are getting a unique bag worthy of today’s modern woman.
Before I created Chelsea Mae Design, I could never find a bag or wallet that I was completely happy with.
Then one year as I was working as a sample maker for a local quilt shop, I made my first bag. I put everything I wanted in that bag from pockets to adjustable straps and pretty fabrics.
After using my bag for a while I realized that I could be onto something and that maybe other women were having a tough time finding what they really wanted in a handbag. So, I decided to start making some to sell.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
Starting a business from scratch while working and going to school full time seemed impossible. College students don’t make a lot of money and the price of high quality fabrics and hardware wasn’t cheap. But I knew I had to keep going, I had to make handbags that would satisfy the women of today.
By trial and error I was able to create products based on what my customers wanted. I listened to their wants and concerns and I created my products around that.
Through it all, we released our first products and the response has been pure love from everyone who sees them.
