Leather Artisan, Meca McKinney of Jypsea Leathergoods LLC

Jypsea Leathergoods, LLC is a line of hand-crafted eco-friendly, luxury leather handbags & accessories with an eclectic edge designed by me, leather artisan Meca McKinney, from my NJ-based design studio.

I started Jypsea after years of working in NYC in the corporate design industry because I simply believed that luxurious, hand-made, well-designed accessories should be accessible to all.
I've earned a degree in accessory design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and fine arts from Thomas Edison State College. I worked in the corporate fashion industry for a decade as a technical designer for footwear, costume and apparel companies. Now I joyfully made beautiful pieces to help courageously stylish individuals express their authentic personality.

Jypsea has been featured in The Today Show, NBC Philadelphia's The Ten! Spot, Clutch Magazine, Upscale Magazine, Trace Magazine and numerous fashion blogs and in various art gallery exhibits.

“Creating a better world is a responsibility of us all and I choose to incorporate that consciousness into fashion.” ~Meca McKinney
