Korina Brewer has been sailing and working on boats ever since she can remember. She grew up on Lake Ontario and moved to NYC to study design in 2012. This is where her love of sailing and sewing intersected. After working in a leather studio in Brooklyn and a sail loft in City Island, it only made sense for her to combine these skills and produce beautiful bags out of her favorite things. Korina moved to the Hudson Valley after graduation to get closer to nature & family; she loves that here she can enjoy equal parts mountain and river, something she derives much inspiration from. She still travels down to the city to sail in the New York Harbor during the summers on an 88 year old wooden schooner. Her project, Eighth Belle, celebrates the combination of Mariner & Maker. Each bag is one of a kind and carefully made by hand in Kingston NY. Her partner, Kaz assists with administrative, production & building projects, here they are shown below at World's End on the Hudson River.
