The Rise Tote on the Horizon

November 07, 2017

With connection as a natural value for me; when it comes to design, you are on my mind. The semi-permanent Dawn | Dusk Collection was heavily based on not only making a product that I love and want to carry but also based on what you are pursuing with your accessory needs. About six months ago, I began to see a pattern with the amount of people asking for a horizontal silhouette for a tote that has security functions for travel but a minimalistic feel for longevity in their work and life.
The Rise is my response to that and I adore this tote!
I removed all the fuss, held tight to functional needs and crafted an everyday tote that oozes the CHC aesthetic.

God continues to use  creation, creativity, and the arts to point to and unlock hope, mystery, beauty, and love. An open invitation for us all."

I’ve made the hard decision to close CHC.

My vision to awaken the beauty in people through creating beautiful products and experiences remains in tact; CHC is simply no longer the vehicle to my vision. My depth of gratitude for your support (every step of the way) is inexpressible.
