In 2011, our lives forever changed when our son Jackson was born. Jackson was 6 days old when we found out that he has Down Syndrome. We knew at that point we had to plan for his future, create a legacy to ensure that he would be taken care of. In the years following, we were inspired to start a handbag company. We wanted a handbag that was fun, fashionable, highly customizable and durable. The med•lē handbag company was born. The med•lē handbag company was developed to ensure that Jackson would be taken care of as he grew older. We named the company med•le, after our beautiful daughter, Medley. The med•lē handbag company is passionate about giving back. We support two amazing organizations. The Down Syndrome Association of Houston, which provides support for families of children with Down syndrome and Free the Captives, which helps pre-teen and teen victims of human trafficking.
