Sink or Swim was developed by Chicago native, Kate Sanderson, originating in a small, self-made studio in her home. Sanderson, who has always had a passion for retro fashion, hot rods, and her hometown, Chicago, decided to dive in head first and blend the things she loves to create a unique line of handbags and accessories. Sink or Swim was then born, and Sanderson is quickly becoming a top-shark in big city waters.

Sink or Swim's products are all made with materials made in the USA, and produced by hand, in Chicago, IL.
