Your Stories

When we say we're nothing without you, we mean it. Your stories, your

perspectives, and of course your creations, are the true DNA of Laudi 

Vidni. No matter who you are or where you came from, we celebrate

everything that makes you an individual.

TODD

Who are you? 
Chief Experience Officer at the American Medical Association and of my own life.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather? 
I was tired of having the same bag as every other guy. I wanted something that looked sleek, masculine and unique. The steel gray and brown leather brown combination is a stand-out without being overpowering or complicated, and the slim profile is just right.

CAROLYN

Who are you? 
I am an artist and a survivor. I act, write, and create crochet creatures and paper crafts. I am generally the happiest when I’m telling stories.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather? 
I wanted something roomy enough to put my creative stuff in, whether it's yarn or scripts. I'm all about bringing lightness and fun to the dark, so I liked adding the strip of patterned pizzaz to a black base.

Love the Bravo Belt Bag as a crossbody for essentials.  Especially good for outfits without pockets.  Red (Cayenne)?  Because a little spice goes with everything!

NATALIE

Who are you? 
I am rebellious.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
When I originally went to design my duffel, I wanted an all black bag with a red interior. I really like pieces that are classic and work with my wardrobe. I felt like a black bag would go with everything. In the normal world, it’s not rare for me to go from the gym to work and then out to an event in one day. I needed a carryall that was stylish. However, an all black bag, while classic, was boring. So, I decided to go bald with a completely orange bag and keep the bright red interior.

ELI

Who are you? 
We are all collections of our mutual experiences. I'm a writer, scholar, organizer, educator, and individual with many lived histories. I'm also a queer trans woman, and proud of it!

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
Often, I'm drawn to plain (aka boring) attire because I know it will match with clothing I already have. I decided on the unique black woven leather backpack because it's flexible but still has a fun flare to show off to the world.

That guy.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
Preparedness. I never know when I'll need anything. Therefore, having a bag of tricks ensures that I'm ready for an impromptu shoot or unplanned overnight stay.

WE BELIEVE

We believe in the power of the individual. Old soul, young at heart, a stunning

spectrum of color, born this way, identify another way, you love who you love, 

from here, from there, from a distant planet, free spirit, firmly grounded,

rebellious, harmonious, shaped by your past, driven by your future. No box can 

hold you. No label can define you. You are one and you are everything.

LONG LIVE THE INDIVIDUAL.
