oh us?

Glad & Young-023.jpg

Hi there! We’re Anna and Erica, the founders of Glad & Young– a design studio producing fun-loving leather goods that are dreamed up and created by us in our Atlanta, GA studio. Since 2015 we have set out to make bags and accessories that are daring, colorful, and full of personality. Functionality is and will always be our first priority, but on top of that our products also solve problems (yes we did make sure our computer tote perfectly holds three bottles of wine), and they’ll last you long enough to pass on to your grandkids. Until then, we’ll keep working to create bags that are exciting to own, and as empowering as the person who carries them.

Feel free to ask questions and introduce yourself at heyhey@gladandyoungstudio.com


Erica is a third generation seamstress and began working with leather and designing bags in 2010. Through her travels and experience with leatherworking, seamstressing, custom upholstery and tailoring she gained the knowledge and passion to create quality products with enduring design. 



Anna is an award-winning graphic designer with a body of work ranging from branding and print design to digital and user experience design. She lives and works in Atlanta, GA where she received her design degree from Portfolio Center. She has an eye for all things beautiful and well made.
