Ghostly Gala to auction luxury leather goods with a back story

AnsonCalder_resize wallet_152The Ghostly Gala, the first-ever fundraising gala in Los Angeles for the FSH Society, has scored another coup with the donation of a collection of stylish, exquisitely crafted leather accessories from Anson Calder. At the Ghostly Gala auction, you will have an exclusive opportunity to receive the first bag off of the production line, along with three components of your choice (due Dec 2015).

But there’s more to Anson Calder than meets the eye.

Curtis Calder, the founder of Anson Calder, began designing bags and accessories to meet his physical needs and match his taste. Having FSH muscular dystrophy, he regularly minimizes what he carries. After designing a thin wallet and a few bags that masterfully utilized space, several friends expressed interest in using the products themselves.

Curt quickly realized that his stylish, minimalist products weren’t just for those with physical limitations but that they spoke to the fashion world and met universal needs of a global market. Set to launch October 2015 with two small leather goods, there is more in store for this up-and-coming brand. Because of our mission to create awareness, provide patient information, and work toward a cure, Anson Calder is dedicated to donating a portion of every sale to support the FSH Society!

The patent-pending system ensures efficient use of space by attaching cases, called Components, to the internal walls of the bag. With the Anson Calder system, your bag can change as often as your needs do, whether it’s from workweek to weekend, or over the long term as you switch out the technology you carry.

Easily transition from your daily work commute to a business trip to a weekend get-away without forgetting any of your essential items. These and other fine leather goods from Anson Calder are currently in production at their factory in Los Angeles.
