If you think about it, all mothers are material innovators. We improvise, adapt and make use of what we have, all in the spirit of resourcefulness.

Hi, I’m Vicki von Holzhausen, founder of this brand and the mother of two wonderful boys. Like any working mom, I’m constantly juggling priorities so I can give my very best in both worlds. Sometimes the pace is intense, but I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love sharing this work with my family—and yours!  

This spring, we’re making great strides in the Design Lab. On Earth Day, we’re launching a new product in an entirely different category. Watch this space and our social channels for the big reveal! 

Our team works tirelessly to innovate, test and learn, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished and where we’re headed. For us, it was never just about handbags. Our mission is to replace animal leather with something even better—everywhere it's used. It’s beyond exciting to see our materials in other product categories, and there’s more to come later this year.

Happy Mother’s Day to all who celebrate. Our Gift Guide has thoughtful ideas if you need a present with a purpose. 

And if you’re more into Mother Nature, we appreciate you, too! Every purchase supports our research into materials that address climate change in a completely new way. Thank you for joining us on this journey. We couldn’t do it without you. 


Much love,
