A Project Sneak Peek
More About Our Maker
Julie was a teacher when she started her company, Rais Case. In 2010 she invested $200 in a sewing machine and fabric with a simple desire to make a bag for her computer. While designing and creating, she discovered a deep joy for making practical goods. With no formal training in sewing, Julie found ways to use her background in art to guide her through the process. What began as a personal project quickly turned into a hobby and slowly evolved into a study of quality, design, and fashion. Today she designs and builds luxury leather handbags & goods with an almost cult-like following. As a mother of two (and as an artist, world-traveler and conscious creator), Julie is passionate about designing the highest quality products with an emphasis in cultivating community and culture around locally produced handmade goods. Sustainability is at the heart of her work.
