About Us

Kelsea, owner and originator of K.slademade, has an ongoing love for all things American; which is a big part of why back in 2010 she jumped at the opportunity to become an entrepreneur, designing and selling handbags. While her taste has refined over the years, she continues to derive much inspiration from classical American heritage using only the finest and most durable leather, zippers, and hardware to create a classically straightforward, sophisticated yet simple line of handbags. 

Kelsea won the American Express Open Rising Stars of Fashion Award in August of 2014 at WWD Magic Market Week in Las Vegas.  The competition was a live three day event, Kelsea designed, sketched, created a pattern and sewed a handbag during the competition.  She competed alongside two other handbag designers that were selected out of a group of 100 designers.

K.slademade is proud to design in their own studio and manufacture right here in the good ole' US of A.
