Thanks for shopping with us, it's nice to meet you
Anna Zietz and Erica Tankesley are the co-founders of Glad & Young– a design studio producing fun-loving leather goods that are dreamed up and created by hand in their Atlanta, GA studio. Since 2015 they have set out to make bags and accessories that are daring, colorful, and full of personality. Functionality is and will always be their first priority, but on top of that the products are designed to solve problems (yes they did make sure their computer tote perfectly holds three bottles of wine), and they’ll last you long enough to pass on to your grandkids. Their mission is to create bags that are exciting to own, and as empowering as the person who carries them.
It may have started as a team of two, but as Glad & Young has grown, so has the team. We have the privilege of hiring and working alongside a small team of badass folks who continue to make our products and your experience better. It takes a village.
