Welden, the brand behind a new line of hand-finished leather handbags featuring a signature hexagon woven pattern, is giving away two handbags, worth a total of $645, to celebrate the launch of its 2016 Fall Collection. —
“Fall is my favorite time of year,” says Sandy Friesen, co-founder of Welden. “I love the rich colors, the deeper hues. Our Fall Collection celebrates autumn by adding several new colors in our most popular styles. Expect to see shades like wine and navy, as well as rose pink. The collection is simply beautiful.”
Launched in 2015 and having recently formed a partnership with Shopbop.com, Welden is quickly earning a reputation for its high-quality leather bags, clutches and totes that compete with brands such as Bottega Veneta and Mansur Gavriel but at prices that are approachable for women everywhere.
Welden bags are ideal for the urban woman who appreciates craftsmanship and leads an interesting, busy life. According to Friesen, the entire collection is extremely versatile, while at the same time fashion-forward, transitioning from day to night, casual to dress, with ease.
“Weldens are investment bags that don’t cost $2,000 and up,” says Friesen, who has 20 years experience developing handbags for top brands. “Our specially treated leather is resistant to moisture and scratches, so when you purchase a Welden, you know it’s going to last.”
Each bag is an original, made by hand in Welden’s studio in China. “Our artisans cut the leather and create the designs for each bag individually, so you can see their own personal touch in each bag,” says Cissy Chui, whose family’s company, The Well Leatherware, has been making high-end handbags in Hong Kong and China for over 50 years.
The care that goes into each creation may have something to do with the company’s philosophy of providing a livable wage and career path for its employees.
“Our artisans are like family. We know them well and take pride in mentoring them and guiding them towards a successful career in the fashion industry. In turn, they love what they do ... and it shows—in every hand-sewn seam, in every handcut and woven pattern.”
