The product is nice and my sister-in-law seems happy with it; however getting the package out for shipping and the shipping process took longer then I expected.

About

Bicycle Chic

Our story begins with a simple need...
My sister and I grew up in a beach town in Florida. We rode our bikes, every day, everywhere. After “growing up” and moving on (her to New York and me to Seattle) we never gave up our bicycle lifestyle.

There was one problem we had always faced when riding our bikes. Purse? We did not want to carry or ride with our everyday (much too large and much too leather) purse. Backpack? Umm, No. Placing our most needed essentials is pocket of (current) man friend? Truthfully, this happened quite often.

What we really wanted and needed was the PERFECT CLUTCH (not a bike bag). Something stylish, AND practical, AND functional. We wanted something small, something that was a carry-some, not a carry-all. Most important, we wanted it to attach to our bicycle.

And so it began…
We do not have any design experience or education. I had never so much as sewn a button on. Thankfully my sister could sew, amazingly, I might add. She sewed and sewed and sewed and then taught me to sew. The design element just sort of evolved organically, always keeping the shapes clean and classic while incorporating fun, bold prints.

We are now living back in Florida. We live together, work together, ride together and have yet to kill one another.

We make our purses for the fashion-savvy biker. Whether she rides her bike in heels (like us), dresses, sandals, jeans, boots, whatever. The girl, who wants a fashionable bag to add style to her ride and beyond.

We create, re-create, learn, adjust & grow. We are ambitious and complicated, fun and mellow. We design with imagination, passion and intelligence. We love to ride our bikes. We love purses.
