About Katherine Kwei
Innovation, exceptional quality and a deep reverence for tradition are the foundation for Katherine Kwei’s design philosophy. Kwei’s grandmother who was a clothier “stylist” for silver screen legends, as well as a master at Chinese knotting, instilled in Kwei a deep reverence for her cultural roots and passion for working with her hands. Her love of handbags, passion for design and entrepreneurial spirit inspired her to start her own line in 2007. Kwei’s designs aspire to seamlessly blend modernity with tradition by creating her own unique texture using quality materials, while staying true to her signature Chinese “Eternity” knot-inspired weave. Her goal is to create collections that are of outstanding quality and timeless designs - much like the art of Chinese knotting that she learned from her grandmother, which is integrated throughout her work. Since her debut, she has achieved just that and has kindled a following of well-heeled women and luxury boutiques, while catching the attention of a growing list of celebrities.
