Fashion is Broken

For decades consumers have chosen the latest styles and cheap prices, at the expense of the underpaid, exploited, and our planet. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Today consumers are questioning the ethics behind the production of their products and the sustainable fashion industry is growing rapidly. Parker Clay has pioneered a better model of making, shopping, and consuming.

Better Bag for a Better World

At Parker Clay, we craft premium leather bags to provide dignified employment and uplift women out of exploitation. We provide better — better bags and better production to make a better world.
We don’t take shortcuts. We obsess over sourcing, stitching, and every last grain of leather, leaning into centuries of Ethiopian leather-working tradition. Our bags are built not just to last, but to get better with age — a claim we’ll back up with our Lifetime Guarantee. These bags change lives at every step of their journey.

Better Bag for a Better World

At Parker Clay, we craft premium leatherbags to provide dignified employment and uplift women out of exploitation. We promise better — better bags and better production to make a better world. Being an Ethical brand shouldn’t be rewarded, it should be the standard.

PC is an amazing company. This is reflected in their customer service and products. Have you heard of tone at the top and how it affects all levels of a company / organization? Well they must have amazing people/owners at the top, because, I have yet to be disappointed by an interaction with people working at PC! Even the owners! 5 stars aren’t enough. Keep up the good work Parker Clay!

I've purchased 3 items this year as splurges for some career goals I've reached and I couldn't be happier with my investment. I fully expect these pieces to be lifetime pieces I carry. Very satisfied!

How We Got Here

One year after traveling to Ethiopia to adopt their daughter, Brittany Bentley and her husband, Ian, would relocate their family to Addis Ababa to work with vulnerable women and children. Having realized the potential impact, they created Parker Clay to showcase the beauty of premium Ethiopian leather while creating safe, dignified employment for at-risk women.

What is Regulation A+/Equity Crowdfunding?

Before crowdfunding, startups were limited to raising capital through friends and family, accredited investors ($200k+ annual income or $1mm+ net worth), and traditional venture capital rounds. Passed in 2012, the Federal JOBS Act enabled the US for true equity crowdfunding by allowing non-accredited investors to invest in private companies. [...]

Before crowdfunding, startups were limited to raising capital through friends and family, accredited investors ($200k+ annual income or $1mm+ net worth), and traditional venture capital rounds. Passed in 2012, the Federal JOBS Act enabled the US for true equity crowdfunding by allowing non-accredited investors to invest in private companies. The SEC has the following major types of crowdfunding, all of which allow for general and online solicitation:

Regulation CF: Companies can raise up to $5MM from unaccredited investors within a 12-month period.*

Regulation D - 506(c): Companies can raise unlimited money from accredited investors*

Regulation A:

Tier 1: Companies can raise up to $20MM from the general public, including institutional investors within a 12-month period.*

Tier 2: Companies can raise up to $75MM from the general public, including institutional investors* within a 12-month period. Non-accredited investors are subject to investment limits dictated by either their net worth or annual income, whichever is greater.

We believe equity crowdfunding represents the democratization of venture investing and we want the general public to have access to invest in Parker Clay.

*You can read more about the JOBS Act on the SEC's website here.

Do I need to be an accredited investor?

This offering is open to all investors - accredited and non-accredited. If you are a non-accredited investor, please note that you cannot invest more than 10% of the greater of your annual income or net worth.
