The Conscious Intentions Collection

We're debuting our third collection of exceptional handbags via this campaign. The collection is named "Conscious Intentions" and is dedicated to mindful living. Our designs have been influenced by an appreciation of the clean lines of mid-century modern architecture and a fascination with eclectic textiles. The bags are simplistic, functional, and both literally and figuratively capable of standing on their own - they endeavor to express your philanthropic values and spark rich conversations about the human character traits you value most!

Product Details and Fit

The Illumination Clutch celebrates and honors the shining characteristics of individuality and confidence. The design, which features richly textured cowhide fur and varicolored leather, ever so slightly glints in the light. With whip-stitching for added structure and a leather tassel for adornment, the Illumination Clutch symbolizes a raw-meets-refined sensibility.

The Tenacity Messenger bag is a declaration of determination and willpower. Dressed with an optional cross-body strap, this tote adapts to morning routine and business errands. The olive green trim is an ode to the colors that flash throughout the avenues during commute.

The Authenticity Tote is the ultimate embodiment of striking detail and signature style. Richly textured cowhide fur and smooth whiskey leather are tailored specifically for the Authenticity’s personality. This tote shines from the inside out and moves with poise during work or weekend.

The Integrity Tote makes a feature of generosity. It is modestly adorned with our signature “Soul Carrier” charm, and its intricate design offers to carry everyday essentials. By its character, this handbag distinguishes itself as the quintessential Soul Carrier tote.

The Perseverance Case executes a sophisticated silhouette that is equally polished and practical. Built with smooth, sturdy leather following a framework of rolled handles, pockets and zip-closure, the Perseverance pays tribute to the determined modern architect.

Just under a week into our campaign we are excited to announce new stretch goals! For each milestone we hit, we'll be rewarding everyone who has pledged to purchase a bag: at $20,000 you'll receive one of our nostalgic Soul Carrier wooden buttons; at $40,000 you'll receive a Soul Carrier coin purse; and at $60,000 we'll include a special Soul Carrier dust bag!

A Soulful Bit of Our History

In response to early backer requests, we're releasing limited quantities of select styles from our Authentic Change Collection during the second half of our campaign. The collection features bold splashes of color on our iconic rectilinear silhouettes. See the photos below for additional details and message us directly via the Kickstarter interface for pricing and availability.

Soul Carrier as a Force for Good

Soul Carrier is a progressive American lifestyle brand that is passionate about designing with purpose. The company launched in 2009 in Phoenix, Arizona under the direction of Founder and Creative Director, Jennifer Paige Boonlorn. Many aspects of art, international travel and life experiences are woven into each unique design collection. The firm's commitment to socially responsible entrepreneurship is currently being displayed via its efforts to become a Certified Benefit Corporation and its pledge to give back to the Greater Phoenix community. Soul Carrier will donate 25% of its Kickstarter fundraising goal to Crisis Nursery, a children's shelter in downtown Phoenix.

About Jenn

Jennifer Paige Boonlorn is the Founder and Creative Director of Soul Carrier. Raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Jennifer graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in business, and moved to New York City to pursue a career in the fashion industry. An unparalleled education at Parsons The New School for Design sponsored her work alongside such powerhouses as Oscar de la Renta, Henri Bendel and American Eagle.

Jennifer’s greatest motivation developed as a result of her contribution to “The Mannequin is our Muse” project for display at the opening of Barneys New York in Scottsdale, Arizona. Jennifer’s visual depth and love for the arts ushered her into a world of distinguished soul-stirring handbags. She's now at work to light the world with conscious fashion!

Risks and challenges

Shipping: Our shipping estimates appear in the details section for each of our rewards. International shipping prices (as well as taxes, tariffs, and duties) vary in different parts of the world. While we believe we’ve accurately forecasted our international fees, we reserve the right to request additional funds from you in exceptional cases. We truly appreciate our international backers and look forward to expanding the Soul Carrier community’s global reach!

Timing: We have carefully chosen our artisan manufacturers based on prior relationships, reliability and experience. We're confident in our team, our suppliers, and our vendors' ability to deliver completed product as promised. There remain uncertainties and risks for delay in any manufacturing process. Although unlikely, procuring our raw materials sometimes takes longer than expected; we are preparing for any potential challenges now by proactively engaging in precautionary steps to prevent delayed deliveries. We will be in frequent communication with you throughout our campaign to keep you abreast of our progress!

Design and Materials: The handbags featured in our video and photos are limited run prototypes. As we continue to refine our designs, slight changes to our finished products may occur. Cowhides have naturally occurring variations in their appearance – we consider this a design asset as it makes each of our bags unique.
