LINEIJ™ (pronounced Lineage) uses the finest leathers and exotic skins, sourced from the far reaches of South America, Asia, Türkiye and Europe, but using local villages and farms. “Preserving the balance of nature is extremely important to us,” explains founder Kipenzi Chidinma. “None of our products come from animals in the wild. The materials we use are designated food sources first.”
LINEIJ™ is certified through C.I.T.E.S., the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and is in compliance with all local, state, federal, and international regulations. A rare consideration in today’s fashion world.
Her Caribbean legacy, and the cornerstone of LINEIJ™, also sets her apart as a favourite to those in the know. It’s a much sought after influence, on the rise as a hotbed of new emerging talent. At the forefront of this ‘new wave’ is Chidinma’s highly anticipated line. This timeless, bespoke, handcrafted accessories collection – with Turks and Caicos roots and global appeal – are the direct results of her great-grandmother Lillian Delancy. After discovering some of Mrs. Delancy’s original hand drawn patterns from yesteryear, Chidinma was inspired not only by the creativity, but the detail in the design. The collection features portfolios, totes, handbags, carryalls, weekend bags, and clutches – for those with an appreciation for quality workmanship and creativity.
“My collection is for those with discerning tastes, who don’t want to sacrifice functionality, unique design, style, or sophistication” says Chidinma.
