Who Should Be Interested:
Do you love high-quality, handmade bags? Do you love supporting local artists? If yes (especially if you live in Massachusetts!), then C.A.S Handmade Inc. might be the investment for you. Their bags are made from full-grain leather and 100% linen, and each one is designed by a Cara DesJardins, a local artist, and her team, meaning you get a beautiful bag, all while supporting a local creative.

The Company:

Each bag is created by artist Cara DesJardins and her team, and each bag is made out of full-grain leather and 100% linen. C.A.S. sells in their own retail store, as well as other stores and online. In fact, C.A.S bags are carried in over 100 stores nationally, and they’ve had over 200% growth in 2017. They reached last year’s total sales of $205,000, and with this venture, they’re hoping to raise capital to go into 2018 and become a $500,000 company. They are already at $250,000 with 70,000 in open purchase orders, so it looks like they are well on their “bagging” their goal and sewing their way to success! They also help support other artists, and in their C.A.S. store, they sell art from 35 other artists as well.
