OUR STORY

Pursey was started by the slip of the tongue when I accidently called my sister’s purse a “pursey” on our way to the Women’s March.  In a sea of pink hats and hand painted signs, we connected with strangers as we walked and were inspired to contribute in a more meaningful way.  We made a vow to never feel powerless again and decided to design a handbag that honored the beginning of a movement and to donate 3% of the sales to organizations that support women.

We named our first design “March On” to acknowledge the thousands of ways that women march on day after day, overcoming all of the challenges we face.  At the very core women are resilient.  Our handbags celebrate that resiliency.

We believe in the social, economic, and political equality of the sexes.  We stand with the silence breakers and change makers.  We celebrate those who have found the courage to use their voice.  Our handbags are a symbol of solidarity.  The times are changing. We are proud to be part of the rise of the woman.

Having each dealt with our own experience of sexual assault, we are honored to contribute to change by donating 3% of the funds raised through Kickstarter to RAINN-The nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization & Women’s March.

Risks and challenges

Although there is always some risk involved with the manufacturing process, we feel confident that we have minimized that risk by having an established relationship with our highly experienced handbag manufacturer.

Our manufacturer has already made several samples for Pursey and is familiar with our designs. Their impeccable standards paired with constant communication has set us up for success. We have also preordered our materials to decrease the production time.

We will be diligently monitoring Kickstarter and working tirelessly to get these beautiful handbags in your hands as quickly as humanly possible!

If there are any delays or unforeseen circumstances, we will update our backers via updates.

Thank you!
