About

I lived in 7 different countries and traveled through even more. After years of carrying around uninspiring and overpriced bags, all the while having to leave behind lovely artworks and decorations every time I moved, an idea occurred to me: why not paint directly on stylish handbags, and then offer them online to customers to eliminate the retail mark-ups?   

Hence I created Cecy & Blake to fuse art and fashion. Each handbag and wallet is made with high quality full-grain leather for durability, expertly designed with plenty of pockets for versatility, and individually hand-painted with original art for memorability. 

For our first line we are offering our hand painted art on a wallet, a clutch, a satchel, and a tote. They are each available in black, navy blue, red, and tan full-grain leather.

Our first line focuses on the realistic beauty of life with a series of flowers, animals, and abstract art. All Cecy & Blake designs will be limited editions. Many of the tote and satchel paintings have matching wallet designs.

Our heart and soul was put into creating the highest quality products using only the best materials.

These artistic handbags have been a labor of love for me and I look forward to sharing them with all of you. Quality is of upmost importance and every bag we sell to customers will meet our highest standards. To us, our supporters are the most important and we will do whatever is needed to give you the high quality artistic leather goods that you deserve.

Our Kickstarter supporters will have the opportunity to own our bags at over 40% off retail prices. If you purchase the matching sets, or multiple bags either for yourself or as gifts, the savings to you will be even greater. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us in the comments section or send us an email.

You will have the opportunity to work with our designers to have your special moments custom painted on one of our bags. This will be a unique one of a kind piece and will not be reproduced by us. We will send out a survey at the end of the campaign to collect the picture you want cherished, and set up a call to discuss your vision. We can not infringe on any trademarks or copyrights (sorry but no Mickey Mouse).

Mass retail brands often mark up their products by 10 to 20 times. With a direct-to-consumer approach, we can skip the retail markup and pass these savings to our supporters. We’re on Kickstarter to meet the minimum order quantities needed for procuring the top quality leather hides, hardware, and lining. We have beautiful bags and wallets designed waiting to come alive. We’re trying to change the luxury leather goods industry by increasing quality and exclusiveness while decreasing prices, and your support will be the driving force moving us forward.

As many of you know getting exposure is the best way for a dream to become a reality. Help us by sharing Cecy & Blake with your family & friends! By simply liking or sharing our Facebook page, following us on Instagram, or sending a few quick emails to your friends and family goes a long way and will truly be appreciated. This is a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with all of you, and I hope wearing these bags and using these wallets will bring as much happiness to your daily lives as they brought to mine.

US shipping is free. 

International shipments might be subject to duties, taxes and clearing fees. You will be responsible for costs that are associated with your country. If delivery is refused the customer will be refunded their money minus shipping costs and a 5% handling fee.

Risks and challenges

We have carefully chosen top manufacturers to work with based on prior sample qualities, professionalism, experience and personal visits. We also have all of our designs prototyped, tested, and ready go. We expect to deliver on time, but there is potential for delay in the manufacturing and tanning process that would be out of our control. . Although unlikely, we have created contingency plans should any delays in the supply chain were to occur. Throughout the campaign and manufacturing process we will remain in frequent contact with all our backers and keep you updated, every step of the way!
