MEI VINTAGE

Welcome to the world of Mei (pronounced May) - Chinese for "beautiful." Mei Vintage is a California based handbag company designed by Alice Huang. Vintage inspired designs with a focus on sustainability. Fusing leather, vintage textiles and organic materials to create a unique handbag line aim for the modern nomad. Our handbags are of exceptional quality and handcrafted in the USA with attention to detail and feature timeless and functional designs that are meant to last season after season.

Mei Vintage is more than just a handbag company. We believe in mindful and conscious practice. There are options and alternative in this industry to manufacture responsible and with care. We are constantly learning and improving the process along the way. We focus on sustainable practices by using repurposed materials, vegetable tanned leather and source our materials domestically whenever possible. We are committed to responsible manufacturing practices and do our best to keep our production in the US and give back to the local economy.

Designer Alice Huang grew up in Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Taiwan. She translates this bi-cultural upbringing into her unique collection of vintage inspired handbags infused with a unique Asian flare. Mei Vintage was founded in winter 2011 and was born from Alice's appreciation of nature, products cultivated by hands, and her passion for repurposing vintage pieces. Handbags from Mei Vintage aren't simply accessories. Each one is an artful combination of nature, culture, and innovation, forged together and preserved in each collection. Mei Vintage is Beauty, sustained.
