Where It All Started

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

The short but sweet story of how a brand started in a bedroom in Queens.

October 1, 2020

I wanted to make a new purse, but it needed to be unlike anything I had made or even seen before. Inspired by my personal interest in bondage and leather, I looked to the leather dog masks usually used in BDSM puppy play. I thought about how strange and beautiful it would be to convert something fetishistic and often taboo like this into a purse for everyday use. The next day I began to pattern-make. The leather for the first prototype (pictured above) was repurposed from a leather jacket at a thrift store. This was my first venture into making accessories let alone sewing leather. And so...

The Dog Bag was born!

After spending days of sewing and making corrections the first sample was ready. I posted images of The Dog Bag to Instagram, and it was immediately a hit. Ever since this initial experiment, we have been working on this brand, and now after much hard work, we are excited to officially launch!
