Local Philadelphia Artisan Series – Arden and James | Artist Portraits

I was fortunate enough to spend time in the studio of Bri Brant the artisan behind the beautiful line of handbags Arden + James. Launched in 2006, Bri’s line of handbags merges her organic design aesthetic with natural and locally sourced materials to create bags that wow in their simplicity and will be wardrobe staples for years to come. In her studio you can see her attention to detail and her love of quality materials. Being a handbag nut I was in seventh heaven surrounded by all the leather, linen, and waxed canvas.

I want to thank Bri for the opportunity to learn more about her artistic process and for allowing me to come and document her in her studio. Truly an honor and a pleasure.
