Palmar Goods is a handmade, ethically-made accessory brand founded by celebrity stylist Shelby Scudder whose upscale clientele include Kesha, Gigi Gorgeous, and Cher Lloyd to name a few. Based in Mar Vista, California, Palmar Goods is determined to combine authenticity and environmental awareness with modern fashion.
While on hiatus to raise her son, Shelby started looking for ways to express her artistic creativity. She began experimenting with vegetable-based dyes and worked on everything from upcycled tees to pillow cases, ultimately landing on cotton canvas.
Scudder designed her signature tote with the intention to create a product that was as functional and versatile as it was uniquely beautiful. The line also includes smaller sleeves, made to perfectly fit a pair of glasses, in addition to the original tote bags.
While it may sound paradoxical, Palmar Goods’ creations are not vegan. They use vegetable tanned leather for lasting quality and longevity of their products.
If you’re interested, you can schedule a visit to their studio in Los Angeles to see how she brings her designs to life for yourself and even actively participate in the formulation of a color of your choosing, which they will ship to your address after completion.
Palmar Goods’ tote bags fly off the shelves with a price tag of $348, while their sleeves retail for $68.
