ELMCY is a New York City based luxury design label founded by husband and wife team Justin Link and Michelle Chong-Link in 2014. ELMCY is committed to creating New York made luxury goods that celebrate excellence and quality in the highest forms. ELMCY empowers our customers to exude confidence through the experience of our exceptionally well-crafted collections.

Combining the finest Italian leathers with centuries old artisanal craftsmanship, each piece is meticulously assembled by hand to the highest standard that clients come to expect. 

ELMCY [elm-see] is derived from a wordplay of the initials of designer Michelle's maiden name, MC.

Made in New York

ELMCY is a New York City based luxury design label, and as such we believe in supporting our local economy.  All of ELMCY's luxury offerings are designed, made and assembled in our studio located right in the heart of the garment district of Manhattan.  

As manufacturing trends shift from cheaper and often inexperienced labor markets back to the U.S., ELMCY is well positioned to continue its mission of producing the highest quality luxury handbags with the best skilled labor New York's fashion district has to offer.  This decision, coupled with our ability to control the design and manufacturing process from start to finish enables us to put quality and customer delight at the forefront of everything that we do.As a boutique luxury design label with a strong focus on quality versus quantity, ELMCY bags are produced in small runs as not to oversupply the market.

Our intent is to protect the environmental and social impact of this industry through our small batch production. This enables us to focus more time on perfecting ELMCY handbags while ensuring sustainability.  All of our production workers are highly valued and paid a fair wage under fair working conditions.
