Kylene Brown's Profile

About

KYEbags was birthed in 2005 in the small town of Seaside, California. Like many entrepreneurs finding their way in the handmade market, my business began with a need for an extra income and a dream to fulfill that quest with something I loved and could do from my home.

I especially pride myself in being a self-taught seamstress. I began learning to sew at the age of 12, with my mom's old foot-pedaled Singer machine. I still remember the day my parents purchased and brought home a brand new digital Husqvarna Viking. My sewing hobby really took off from there- working on projects such as pillows, curtains, doll clothes, needlework and an occasional bag for myself or friends.

KYEbags was birthed in 2005 in the small town of Seaside, California. Like many entrepreneurs finding their way in the handmade market, my business began with a need for an extra income and a dream to fulfill that quest with something I loved and could do from my home.

I especially pride myself in being a self-taught seamstress. I began learning to sew at the age of 12, with my mom's old foot-pedaled Singer machine. I still remember the day my parents purchased and brought home a brand new digital Husqvarna Viking. My sewing hobby really took off from there- working on projects such as pillows, curtains, doll clothes, needlework and an occasional bag for myself or friends. It wasn't until many years later that I would take up a real interest in fashion, through the avenue of bags and accessories, after realizing what a challenge it was to find something quality in mainstream retail to fit my unique personal style.

Since the start of KYEbags, my business has really evolved- enduring several moves across country and various life changes along the way. But one thing has always remained the same- that I've always carried it with me through the good times and bad. It's purpose has varied over the years- from creative outlet to financial provision. From a source of extra pocket change to a way to pay off debt. Whatever chapter of life I find myself in, KYEbags always seems to have a place, and I am thankful for the ever constant personal growth and stretching it has challenged me with.

All KYEbags are handcrafted, photographed, listed, packaged and shipped by me- in between caring for my children, being a wife and managing our home. My husband, Mike, holds up the technical end of things, and is always there when I need a listening ear to spill all my business questions, thoughts and creative rants on. He's accompanied me to many art show/festivals and I can always count on him for support.

Inspiration for my work comes largely from the happenings around me in my everyday life. Many of my designs are based off of the practical needs of myself as a mother, while trying not to sacrifice personal style and tastes. All of my purses and accessories are made in limited run, to ensure that my customers are truly receiving a quality item that is special and unique to them. My wish is that my creations will bring a smile to your face and bring a blessing to your home.

I truly love my customers and greatly appreciate each and every sale. Each order that is placed with KYEbags is sure to help provide for one of my family's many basic needs, or get us one step closer to our reaching our dreams- which to me, is a beauty of the private handmade business industry that I will never take for granted.
I am always open to custom orders and your thought/ideas. My inspiration and creative juices are always flowing, often times much faster than my hands, time and energy will allow! You'll find a wide variety of styles, pattern and colors among my work. I try to provide a vast selection full of fresh and exciting designs that are sure to meet each person's unique needs.
