About

You know that old saying, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts?” We believe it. But we don’t think that’s an excuse to neglect appearances.

What if you could carry everything you need in one beautiful, smart package?

MEI LI genuine leather handbags are perfect for keeping your daily essentials beautifully, no matter where you go. Whether you are out on a date or running to and from the office, we get that your bag has to be fabulous, functional, smart — on the inside and outside.


THE MIN CROSSBODY

Only from MEI LI. The only crossbody with a full-size wallet included! Women need both so why choose? Who has time to swap wallets when on the go?

Snap the magnetic wallet onto the crossbody, click the straps in place, and go!

The Min Crossbody fits your smartphone, has multiple pockets for organization, and has a key ring to attach your keys to so you never have to dig for your keys again!

The Lian tote has compartments / holders for:

  • up to a 12 inch slim laptop
  • iPad/tablet/Kindle
  • Computer accessories 
  • Umbrella
  • Water bottle
  • Cables and earphones
  • Cellphone

Keep your keys accessible with a special key strap. Slip the optional small card wallet into a designated pocket for safekeeping.

Carry your work and travel essentials!

 HEAD DESIGNER

MEI LI’s Head Designer, Olivia Chan, is a veteran of the design industry. Starting as a shoe designer, she has accumulated over 15 years of experience and numerous industry awards. Her most notable accolades are her ability to fuse diverse styles. With her passion for fashion, she longed to design a leather goods line that she would actually use. As a fashionable modern woman herself, Olivia understands the pressures and trials of making a functional and elegant luxury bag. Her goal was to design a line of style and quality without compromising either. With her experience and feedback from customers and other fashion houses, she has designed a bag for maximum function that is as beautiful as the women who use it.


CEO

James Ng is the founder and CEO of MEI LI. James has over five years of experience in the mobile accessories industry and has launched a number of successful real estate businesses. James spearheaded and developed the concepts that serve as the cornerstone of MEI LI’s business philosophy. It was James’ vision of bringing Asian representation in business and design to the fashion industry that brought the MEI LI team together. He is a champion of diversity and transparency in both the MEI LI workplace and in his everyday life.


MARKETING AND BRANDING SPECIALIST

Akiko Bates runs MEI LI’s media and outreach team. Her diverse background includes working on the social media team for the Sony Open in Hawaii and the launch of Fashion Week Honolulu. Akiko’s work in sales for Kate Spade sparked her handbag addiction and provides real world understanding and insight at the consumer level. She is excited to share her passion for handbags and MEI LI’s intelligent designs that make a woman’s most used accessory beautiful and useful.

Risks and challenges

Most of the risks involved in designing, prototyping, and testing of the SOMA Collection have been addressed.

We are ready to manufacture and ship. Additional challenges pertain to marketing and fulfillment. There are costs associated with advertising, social media marketing and starting on volume production and we will need this project to hit its funding goal in order to finance these costs. Additionally, we will need funds to fulfill orders, since we are shipping exclusively online and will not have retail partners to share costs with.

Your contribution will help us to meet these upcoming challenges and ensure that MEI LI sees a successful launch.
