Founded in 2010 by owner and designer Kelly Mayo, Cela New York derives its influence from her Spanish heritage as well as from the eternally inspiring streets of New York City.
Born and raised in New York, Ms. Mayo not only incorporates the vivacious style found on its notorious streets, but also is heavily influenced by the uncomplicated inherent style found in the women of Galicia, Spain. Cela, an old Galician family surname, combined with the name of the greatest city in the world seemed entirely fitting for the brand.
With each design focused on creating clean and refined functional bags with sleek silhouettes and vintage inspiration, each collection is reminiscent of family and heirlooms while channeling the city's boisterous character.
Cela New York manufacturers entirely in New York City, is a registered member of the "Made In NY" Program, and takes great pride in ensuring all materials are produced within the USA.
