About Us


Found is a Pacific Northwest leather goods company handcrafting unique leather bags and accessories using thoughtfully procured, high-quality leather and hardware. Each piece is designed, cut, and sewn in our 100+year old studio in the Fairhaven district of
Bellingham, Washington.  
We love to make, and hope you love what we make.  
We are happy to be :: f o u n d ::!

Nicki Lang, the founder and chief maker of found leather goods, retired from her first two careers as plant ecologist and middle-school teacher, to spend spare hours creating in her Bellingham, WA studio. All other hours are spent chasing her 2 small boys, Jude and Leo, furry dog, Zion, and husband, Kevin.


Emily Bajema, production assistant, is a third generation Bellingham native with not only a gift for making, but an actual degree in making. Emily graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a BA in Apparel Design. When Emily isn't at the ::found:: studio helping bring Nicki's creations to life, she is busy creating her own beautiful clothing designs.
