Our Story

Hello! Let me introduce myself, I‘m Dee Maxwell, the Owner/Designer/Maker/Everything else behind Suede&Co.

Suede&Co was born in 2015 as a way to create something beautiful out of waste materials from the vintage fashion industry. While the supply of reclaimed materials ran out, the demand for my leather bags didn’t.

After focusing on trend research to create a cohesive collection, Suede&Co was relaunched in late 2016. I added a set of suede pouches marketed towards bridesmaids in 2017 and that's when things really started taking off.

I was able to leave my boring office job in 2017 to run Suede&Co full time! Since then, I've been busy creating new products and sourcing new leathers. I hope you love the collection as much as I do!
