Today, we are diving into The Story of Us.
How It Began...
Like most big ideas, we identified a problem and quickly determined we were the right women to solve it. Cannabis accessories weren't pretty enough for the new demo of women using them.
The reality is, there are beautiful interiors all around us. From restaurants to pilates studios and of course, our curated homes, design is critical in creating a positive experience. Cannabis should be no different.
"You know that feeling when you get a fresh mani/pedi and somehow, you feel lighter, cleaner, prettier? That's the feeling we want to give you with our products." -Kelly
It sounds simple, but we saw a void in the market for beautiful cannabis accessories and thoughtful product recommendations that would shorten the journey on discovering what works for women.
This brand took a very long time to come to fruition because, well, we are still running our interior design company and focusing on keeping our current roster of big hitter clients happy. But here we are, designing interiors AND cannabis products for the chicest of clients!
Note about Obsessive Creative Personalities:
Being particular is a bit of a curse. If it isn't pretty, I don't want it. Even if it's functional. So when I began looking for cannabis accessories that were actually beautiful, I found very few existed, and none looked like what I was envisioning. I wanted pretty storage solutions, warm and fragrant candles that made me feel happy and safe, and thoughtfully designed pouches so I could go from a client meeting to a dinner with girlfriends while carrying my cannabis discretely. I am an interior designer, so my natural instinct was just to design a pouch that met all of my requirements.
And so she was born.
As we evolved, as I began looking for products I actually wanted to use or give to my girlfriends, the need presented itself. The dream was to build a brand that is as swoon-worthy as the interiors I have been designing for 20 years in San Francisco. So we did. We started with The KellyGreen Pouch No.1 and the KellyGreen Candle followed suit.
How It's Going...
We are currently in boutiques here in California. The first boutique to carry the line was Scout Palm Springs, the brainchild behind the boys from Hewn, arguably the most progressive and beautiful showroom in the prestigious San Francisco Design Center. The second was Anthem, THE go-to retail boutique for the serious design lovers of Pacific Heights and Marin. (Talk about starting at the TOP!)
From letterpress packaging to scent suppressant cannabis storage, we are designing superior products. Showcasing our products in design focused boutiques makes sense.
Where We're Heading...
We created the ultimate designer pouch so you can store your cannabis with dignity. We followed with a candle that sets the scene and truly pairs perfectly with the fragrant scent of cannabis. It will help you stay in a positive headspace while consuming. By the end of this year, we will be in dozens of boutiques and are expanding our product offerings to include beautiful, feminine accessories that actually look great in your home, not just your handbag. I would love to have you follow along with us on this journey, say what you need and share what's working and what isn't.

OUR GOAL is to share more information as we continue to discover our favorite products, tips & tricks. There is a ton of information and misinformation out there about cannabis. Follow along as we grow as a brand, grow as humans, talk to the experts, and connect you to great things you are sure to pass on girlfriend-to-girlfriend.
