Celebrating Our Customers
"I was admiring some very beautiful leather bags on Instagram approximately 2 years ago. I was driving back from taking my son to school when I drove by this adorable store by the courthouse in Santa Barbara! It was Parker Clay and I had no idea this was the same company associated with the bags I loved on Instagram. I then learned the entire Parker Clay story and my obsession was started!"
"I basically look at my Emma Bucket bag is carrying different versions of my world. It’s roomy and structured enough that I can put pretty much anything in there. As a busy mother of six, sometimes I carry my books in there when I have to sit in a waiting room at an appointment. Sometimes I carry my dinner in the bag when I’m running from activity to activity. Sometimes I even carry a sleeping mask in case I want to catch a quick nap while waiting in the parking lot for my team at drivers training. It’s even large enough to carry a light jacket in case things get chilly. Pretty much anything really. The best part is I don’t ever look like I’m hauling around a bunch of stuff. I just feel classy and refined when caring my bag. I like knowing that it provided dignified employment to other women. Basically, everything I need in a bag."
"I just recently discovered P.C. thanks to my wonderful friend Rachel. I love everything this company stands for. I’m in love with my bucket bag and can’t wait to expand my P.C. collection. It’s a beautiful company with beautiful bags."
I love my Miramar backpack and Makeda crossbody bag. The best part is the story behind them, and I am glad to contribute to the hardworking ladies of Ethiopia.
I am SO glad I happened upon Parker Clay! I love ethical companies that strive for change. AND the bags are simply the best!
I'm so grateful I found Parker Clay in my young 20s (i.e. just after college). Saving up nannying money to buy the Merkato Tote when I was scrimping on other things felt crazy, but almost 6 years later, I'm so glad I did! The quality, construction, and functionality of these bags have served me so well. The Miramar backpack has been my trust bike-commute companion and was the only personal/everyday bag I brought with me when living the #vanlife for a year. I gifted the Abeba clutch to each of my bridesmaids (and got one for me, too, couldn't resist!). The Merkato tote has helped me confidently enter job interviews and high-level meetings. And, the emphasis on intentionality and care for the products really resonates with my desire to have fewer, better things. I just refuse to purchase bags from anywhere else!
