Our Philosophy

Whether you’ve never touched a sewing machine before or have decades of experience under your belt, we’ll meet you where you are and show you what you’re capable of. Embracing mistakes as learning opportunities, practicing creative courage, and building confidence through hands-on learning are hallmarks of the Klum House experience.


It’s not just about creating bags. It’s about creating a social movement.


“For me, learning how to make things is like developing a new set of intelligences. Not only does it build confidence and efficacy, it helps create more conscious consumers that value human energy and creativity even more. When people learn to make things with their own two hands, they develop through a newfound appreciation for the value handcrafted goods—their own, and those made by other artisans.” — Ellie Lum, Klum House Founder & Head Educator
