Handbag designer Hayden Reis calls herself a "true Floridian" and it's not hard to see why. Born and raised in the Sunshine State, Hayden is now raising her own family in Sarasota and has spent countless days at a beach, by a pool, or on a boat. Her need for practicality in a handbag and a life spent in the sun, sand and water led her to start her own line of bags and accessories in May 2012.
"Just because I was in a bathing suit or cover up (or even doing “mom” errands or at the gym) I still wanted to be stylish… functional, but stylish," Hayden says. "I wanted a true carry-all bag that could take me anywhere and make eyes turn. A bag that could take sunscreen leaks, my kids' snack crumbs and it had to have pockets galore for my endless supply of stuff.”
Hayden Reis bags are not only adorable, they are also made of high-quality Dacron sailcloth, which means they are super durable, water- and sand-resistant, lightweight and come in a variety of colors. Each bag has been carefully assembled and sewn by hand in the USA.
