FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK — Welden, the brand behind the hand-woven hexagon weave leather handbags, partnered with indie pop artist Young Summer, aka Bobbie Allen, to celebrate the launch of their 2017 Spring/Summer Collection.
Founded in 2015 and having recently formed partnerships with Shopbop, Tootsies and now Nordstrom (as of March 2017), Welden is quickly earning a reputation for its high-quality leather bags, clutches and totes that compete with brands such as Bottega Veneta and Mansur Gavriel, but at prices affordable for women everywhere.
“Welden bags are ideal for the urban woman who appreciates craftsmanship and leads an interesting, busy life,” says Sandy Friesen, co-founder of Welden. “The new collection focuses on the simplicity of classic shapes to ensure the emphasis is always on our signature handcrafted hexagon weave. Spring is my favorite time of year, especially after a cold winter, so we wanted to focus on rose pinks and neutrals, colors that are versatile and easy to wear.”
“Beautiful designs deserve to be beautifully made. Our artisans hand weave each panel, so you can see their own personal touch in each bag,” says Co-Founder Cissy Chui. Her family’s company, The Well Leatherware, has been making high-end handbags in Hong Kong and China for over 50 years.
“Our artisans are like family. We know them well and take pride in mentoring and guiding them towards a successful career in the fashion industry. In turn, they love what they do, and it shows in their work. We are excited to be launching our latest line with such an amazing new artist as Young Summer,” Chui concluded.

As with all Welden creations, the bags of the new collection are each hand-woven by experienced artisans. With only limited numbers of each design being produced, every Welden handbag possesses a unique, distinctive personality that reflects the story of the talented artisan who created it.
Beautiful designs deserve to be beautifully made. Hand-weaved leather handbags, clutches and totes from Welden embody this belief in ways that every woman can appreciate, treasure, and carry with pride and confidence.
