Providence based designer, Kent Stetson, began making handbags in 2003 out of frustration over being unable to sell his artwork after graduating from Brown University. This led to Stetson cutting up his canvas’ and sewing them into bags- which sold immediately. After 15 years of success, the Kent Stetson brand is still going strong and his eccentric clutches can be seen in the hands of celebrities such as Martha Stewart, Billie Lee, Gabrielle Ruiz, and Angelica Cross.
Stetson’s designs are a great way to spark a fun conversation. Whether one of the signature clutch pieces (each comes with a handy crossbody strap), or the larger day bags, Stetsons intention is to make something that breaks the ice and turns everyday adventures into an opportunity to make new friends.
