Born and raised in Florida, and now raising my own
family in Sarasota, I’m what people call a “True Floridian.” As you can imagine,
I have spent countless days at a beach, by a pool, or on a boat… Sun, sand and
water all go hand in hand in the Sunshine State.
My line got started after many years of wanting to start my own business but
never having the guts to quit my job as a pharmaceutical sales rep. I spend so
much time at the beach, pool and gym and never found that perfect bag that could
do it all. Hayden Reis was born from the idea that just because I was in a
bathing suit or cover up (or even doing “mom” errands or at the gym) I still
wanted to be stylish… functional, but stylish. I wanted a true carry-all bag
that could take me anywhere and make eyes turn. A bag that could take sunscreen
leaks, my kids snack crumbs and it had to have pockets galore for my endless
supply of “stuff.” Hayden Reis launched Memorial Day weekend. I decided in
January to resign from my job to start Hayden Reis. In March I found my
manufacturer and by Memorial Day weekend my website launched and products were
being sold all around the world. I have been working harder than ever but my
hard work is paying off. I have 9 retail locations carrying my line and continue
to grow. My Ecommerce site will go live early July. Hayden Reis bags are sold in
gyms, retail boutiques and high end hotel gift shops.
What makes Hayden Reis bags so unique is that they are made of some of the
highest quality Dacron sailcloth in the country. That means they are super
durable, water & sand resistant, lightweight and come in a variety of beautiful
colors. Each bag has been carefully assembled and sewn by hand in the USA.
Hayden Reis bags are very bright and whimsical in design. There are 8 different
designs and huge variety of colors available. In fact, Hayden Reis was
contacted last week by IMG Fashion in NYC. They asked me to design 250 VIP gift
bags for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami Swim Show in July. Hayden Reis
will be the official VIP gift bag for the show!
My greatest achievement in this process has been hearing all of the reason why
all of the women who have a Hayden Reis bag love their bags! I love seeing all
of the photos women post ofwhere they are with their bags on Facebook. Its great
to hear people tell me they how many people compliment them on their Hayden
