Inspired by your everyday East Coast style, RLC aims to bring high quality goods that can take you anywhere and celebrate all of life’s moments.
With Love, From Your Crafter
I love to create. I pretty much always have. Whether it was practicing my stitching at my grandmother's house when I was a kid or telling my parents I needed a full jewelry workshop in my basement, I always had a project. I turned these hobbies into a career in product management in the fashion industry, but the crafts never stopped. After college, I made my life long dream come true by moving to New York City and working for a luxury handbag designer. There I learned all about handbag and small leather goods design and construction. I learned about the tanning process and fell in love with the craft and quality of great leather goods. Throughout the product creation process, we threw out a TON of leather. I was only there a year but could not stop thinking about all the things I could make if only I knew how. I moved back home to Boston and I knew I had my next project. I spent 4 years watching endless YouTube videos, stitching all hours of the night, messing up and starting again until I got it right; all from the living room floor in my 3 bedroom apartment. Shout out to the multiple roommates who allowed that! Lots of wine, hours of Friends and Sex and the City, and more needle stabs than I care to admit, all led me here: Rizzo Leather Co.
