Created Out Of Love
Posted on January 26 2017
MacKenzie83 was created out of the love of handbags, fashion and the need for conscious living.
We have made it our commitment to make ethical handbags and accessories that are fair-trade, American made and built to last. We take pride in being eco-conscious and manufacturing in ways that are not harmful to people or the environment.
It is our mission to know where all of our materials are coming from. The Farm to Arm® collection uses USA organic free-range hides, which are tanned using old world methods. We do not use harmful chemicals that are found in conventional chrome tanning methods, nor plastic PU or PVC faux versions. Our leather is vegetable tanned with tree bark by our partner US tannery. Each handbag is paired with organic cotton lining that has been dyed or printed with sustainable, non-toxic dyes. All components are sourced from organic, up-cycled or recycled materials. This idea is unheard of in the handbag world, and we are deeply dedicated to making a change. By keeping everything local, it gives us the ability to personally know our workers, support safe and fair working conditions, child labor laws and the reduction of our carbon footprint. It has taken us a lot of hard work and determination to become a transparent company, but we believe it is well worth it. Let's be the change.
