LA-Based Baltimore Bag Co.
Introducing the BALTIMORE BAG CO. by Los Angeles-based designer and manufacturer, Jerey Ojeah! A seasoned veteran on the fashion front, Jerey brings to the scene a luxurious “American Made” handbag collection made of “genuine leather” rather than “bonded”, creating timeless pieces of the highest quality giving you the feel, true nature, and texture of real leather. From the boardroom to the boardwalk, you are truly going to be accessorized in style!
Handcrafted locally and produced with American leather by American craftsmen, styles are framed against timeless classic shapes – clutches, totes, backpacks, rounds, cross body, bucket, messengers, mud cloth, jute, canvas, fanny packs, belts, hobos, weekenders and carry all “super” bags – each evergreen creation will age well with time, both in style and texture.
Also available are exotic skins such as crocodile, Mongolian sheep along with the traditional calfskin and cowhide. Each piece evokes a bold statement that brings the visual richness and diversity of tradition into a thoroughly modern context for sophisticated women everywhere!
And for those that like true “1 Of A Kind” pieces, Jerey has also taken to recycling materials and creating fabulous patchwork cross body bags that are truly eye-catching!
With an eye on the luxury market, Jerey chose to work with genuine leather because bonded leather is not durable, has a shorter life span, colors fade, it wears away, scratches and peals easily and it’s harder to clean. And though she is LA-based, Jerey named her collection as an homage to one of the oldest city’s in America as she felt it encapsulated the spirit of “America” with its historic part in the birth of the country.
Sold online or via her retail boutique, Easy Living (located in a historic building in the burgeoning Koreatown area of Los Angeles amid the epicenter of lively dining, dancing, and retail shops along 6th Street), her focus was initially selling clothing and accessories from unique national and international brands.
However, it was here that Jerey began designing and selling her own creations and the brand has been steadily gaining momentum as the must-have accessory for their alluring blend of traditional elements and modern style. Retail: $75 - $500 range.
