A BRIKA maker story

Rachael Riedinger

"I believe in craftsmanship."
“I find inspiration in art, history, Egyptology, personal style, my Boston Terrier (Coco) and of course, where each bag might go.”

“Go with your gut, stay true to your own personal style, work your butt off and dont take everything so seriously!”


“I never make something I would not wear myself. I make things that are simple in shape and devoid of anything too trendy.”


“Go with your gut, stay true to your own personal style, work your butt off and dont take everything so seriously!”


Ever since Rachael was a young teen she knew she wanted to be a designer. Through her college years, she lost track of her desired career path as others urged her to pursue a more lucrative and secure career path. After graduating with a BA in Art History and an unfufilling job out of college, Rachael felt a strong desire to do something creative. She decided to utilize her decade of sewing skills and venture into the accessories realm and pursue leatherworking.


She wanted to develop a simple utilitarian leather bag with a feminine edge to fit a woman’s frame, and started a business doing something she loved. The greatest compliment is when a woman tells her “this is the bag I have been looking for.” She remains enthusiastic knowing she can design something others will love.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever recieved? 
"If you believe in what you are doing and something blocks your way, find another route."

How would you spend your ideal Saturday?
Brunch with friends, an afternoon hike, a trip to the dog park for Coco and fancy cocktails in the evening.  

What's your guilty pleasure?
Gummy bears in frozen yogurt! I love the mix of textures.


“I like to think about where it will travel, the woman who carries it and what she carries. Each one will have its own story with time.”
