hair on hide shoulder bag and hip envelope


Original leather goods for the modern urban bohemian 

The concept behind Mariclare McKnight's effortlessly feminine accessories line CADETTE is to create rugged and beautiful pieces whose shapes can be worn in a variety of settings and seasons. The CADETTE woman is an expressive, fun, freedom-loving individual who walks a distinctive path.

Mariclare sources American-tanned leathers, richly textured ethically sourced fabrics, repurposes sailcloth and the like, as well as creates one-of-a-kind painted and screen printed textiles for CADETTE.
