THE BRAND

Grace Han

Founded in February 2019, Grace Han is a luxury accessories and leather goods brand, defined by its focus on exceptional craftsmanship, offering the perfect balance of timeless style, uncompromising quality and purposeful design.

Dedication, authenticity, and harmony within life's conflicting forces were elements that rung true for the founder when she set out to build her company, and have since remained the three key elements of her brand.

With its roots in both London and Taipei, Grace Han is a brand that combines values from both the East and the West. The brand reflects softness and strength, emotion and logic, tradition and innovation.

 

THE FOUNDER

Since childhood, Taiwanese born British designer Grace Han learned the value of discipline, hard-work, and attention to detail from her entrepreneurial father. Synchronously, studying art and calligraphy from her mother cultivated her appreciation for tradition, fine arts and craftsmanship; the basis of her collection inspiration.

When Grace began the journey of creating Grace Han, she knew that above all she must be uncompromising in her vision and therefore committed the following years to learning her craft; it was vital to her that she not only design her bags but be able to make them from the inside out.  Following two years of apprenticeships in a handbag factory, Grace employed a pattern cutter and the two of them, in a small apartment in Taipei,  worked on making her designs a reality.

The Grace Han leather pleats in the brand’s signature ‘Ballet Lesson’ collection are an innovation that took seven years to perfect, a testament to her persistence and commitment to quality. Grace was inspired to create the pleats during a period of introspection in which she came to see them as a physical representation of herself, her mother’s influence on her, and the women that encapsulate the brand. The contradicting fluidity of the unbending lines expresses perfectly the women who are multifaceted, profound, both soft and strong, rational and emotional.
