Brandon Blackwood was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. He is of Jamaican and Chinese descent, spending most of his childhood traveling to and from New York and Tokyo. After majoring in Neuroscientific Psychology at Bard University, Blackwood quickly realized that he would rather work in Fashion and started the necessary steps to launch his first handbag line.
For two years he traveled all over the world to source the most ethical materials and fair-trade craftsmen before launching in 2015. His first collection consisted of 4 bags, each named after his closest friends and brother; THE MORELL, THE CAMILLE, THE SOPHIA and THE TRISTAN. He still works with these craftsmen to this day.
In the past 6 years, Blackwood has focused on creating bags, totes and accessories that are trend-forward yet lasting. He produces pieces that he and his customer will love.
Most recently, in the start of a year none of us were expecting, 2020, Brandon had a vision to create a bag with a statement he believes strongly, End Systemic Racism. Like all his pieces, this statement will forever be timeless.
