Meadlyn Collaborative

Meadlyn Collaborative is a creative endeavor started from a quest of pain, to find beauty and peace. Rooted in the rich heritage of family.

I am still startled when I see my parents' deep impact in the way I live and interact with the world. When I stopped fighting becoming just like them, I realized there is a beauty in me that I owe to my my parents. This last season has been a one marked by fog, confusion and pain. As my father passed away I was left with a changed future, one I had never imagined. After his death I couldn't create anything, my hands lay empty at my sides everything I touched came out wrong.

My father was a creator, always working on elaborate projects, He instilled in me the importance of quality. Everything he created was overbuilt to withstand the largest of natural disasters, anticipating every possibility. He built with time in mind, leaving behind a legacy.

My mother is also a creator but in a different capacity. She created spaces where people felt loved and cared for. My mother believed that food was the building block of love. She has been a catalyst for my dreams; buying me my first leather hide she rightfully predicted I would fall in love.

On days where words failed my heavy heart, working on leather became a way I could grieve. Working with my hands and being creative was a way to physically process the pain.

This dream is more than creating bags, it is a dream of sharing a process with others. A process that started in grief and has begun a journey of creating with those I love.

Life is a journey and one that is often unexpected. We have embarked on a pilgrimage choosing to live each day that we are given. While our products will not make your life more fulfilled we hope we can create a quality product that can travel with you. To hold the treasures you collect along the way. Because sometimes the most profound things are the simplest. Let our journey become a part of your pilgrimage. We can't wait to be inspired by you.
