Kathy Van Zeeland is an American brand of handbags and accessories. It was founded in 2004 in the United States by the passion of its creator and designer, Kathy Van Zeeland. The brand is also presented in Europe, since the acquisition of the license by Safti S.r.l in 2006.

Since then, Kathy Van Zeeland has branched out to into watches, clothing, and jewelry. Always with an eye toward high-quality materials and the best hardware available.

After bursting on the scene in late 2004, Kathy Van Zeeland is now in more than 1,300 stores nationwide, such as Macy’s, Dillards, Boscovs, Bon Ton, and Belk. Online retailers include QVC, eBags, Zappos and Amazon.

In fact, her subdued signature prints and burnished metallic bags rank among the top two or three brands, according to retailers. These stylish and functional pieces.

With her unsurpassed eye for detail and exceptional style, Van Zeeland's line is becoming an important lifestyle brand. She already has expanded from "must-have" handbags and small leather goods to coordinated belts and sunglasses. Incidentally, Van Zeeland's husband, Bruce Makowsky, is the company CEO and co-president.

And Van Zeeland's smart and sleek design inspiration doesn't stop with camouflage, ultrasuede and signature print bags. Belts made with distressed fabrics and bold hardware retail from $48 to $68. Embellished sunglasses are priced at $48. With the exception of sunwear (licensed to Lantis eyewear), the design and manufacturing is handled in house, enabling all of the accessories to be cross merchandised seamlessly.
