Meet the Designer: One Fated Knight

They name their bags after nobility and find inspiration in the medieval. Meet the gal behind One Fated Knight’s timeless leather handbags.

Jen Yau first began her line of woven and patchwork leather bags to fill a personal desire: the perfect, affordable leather bag to go with her many pairs of jeans. While the rest of us regular humans might spend day after day searching for the right bag, she took matters into her own hands and created her own. She picked up and moved back to her hometown of Vancouver after working on Fashion Avenue in New York City for years with a lot of gumption and a ton of entrepreneurial spirit. Since then her bags have been snapped up by boutiques across Canada and the US and beloved by bloggers and editors alike. Here, she gives us a look behind the scenes.
