About


We are a SOHO NYC based fashion accessory company.  Our mission is to make fashionable and practical accessories that keep your valuables connected to you.  So you never have to say “Where the hell are my keys” again.

Mission – create stylish products to “Dominate Your Stuff”.

Inspiration

The key leash idea was inspired by a simple observation that most handbags make it hard to keep things organized and most often finding keys turns into an annoyance whenever they are needed the most.  Most solutions, e.g. lanyards and strings, that address this “where the hell are my keys” miss two critical attributes: 1) Style, and 2) Usability.  We aim to address both in our products.

Style – We use premium Italian Lamb leather to hand-make each key-leash in New York.  We use trendy colors and finishes to make the leashes elements of one’ style statement.  Style also extends to packaging and branding that carries over to our presence on the web.  ”Its Buttersoft” is the most uttered reaction when customers hold the key leash in their hands the first time.

Usability – To make the Key Leashes usable, we ensure that each leash is long enough to enable key access and usage without unsnapping/unhooking the leashes from the bag.  Snaps allow the leash to be removed and snapped onto a different bag.  Furthermore, a double-snap configuration (patent pending) allows for the Key Leash to be shortened and worn on the wrist or used on a shallower handbag.

Unleash Education

A key part of our founding principle is to unleash human potential that enriches lives, whether it be in the creative endeavors, or community service, we are deeply committed to supporting it.  Our “Unleash Education” campaign is founded on this very principle.  It is our way to make an impact.
